These results suggest a leftward bias in subcortical fear processing and highlight the importance of hemifield advantage in emotional lateralisation, which might reflect the combination of hemispheric dominance and asymmetrical interhemispheric information transfer.
"Instead, lateralisation may have a genetic basis or alternatively may be influenced by factors in the early embryonic period," they wrote in their paper.
Advantages being the tympanic graft has a lower risk for lateralisation and more acceptable success rate.
The advantages of US over FMRI include better spatial resolution, fetal lateralisation, cost, availability and portability.
Effects of sample characteristics on group differences in brain lateralisation and cognition.
In project A, I will combine behavioural measures with functional transcranial Doppler ultrasound (fTCD) measures of blood flow and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to identify individual differences in patterns of dissociation between language functions in lateralisation. In project B I will test the prediction that risk for language and literacy impairment is increased if different language functions are represented in opposite hemispheres.
From 1986 we started doing vocal cord lateralisation. But the success rate was poor.
All of the birds participated in two tests designed to test their cerebral lateralisation, meaning how strongly each bird preferentially processes information using either hemisphere of the brain.
GROUP I EEG Pattern--Normal EEG, GROUP II EEG Patterns-Focal/multifocal lateralisation; Positive sharp rolandic waves; Excessive sharp wave activity; Multiple polyspike pattern; Asynchronacy/high voltage delta activity and GROUP III EEG Patterns--Persistent marked voltage suppression; Burst suppression pattern; Isoelectric background pattern
All animals have cerebral lateralisation, meaning that their brains are divided into two hemispheres responsible for processing different tasks.
"Today there is scientific evidence in favour of both these theories, but there is a certain consensus in favour of the lateralisation of emotional processing predicted by the approach-withdrawal hypothesis," concludes Aznar-Casanova.
