Abstract:
This thesis concerns itself with the study of lateral preference and performance behaviours for the functions of handedness and language. The research reported in this thesis addresses the measure and expression of handedness, in the light of current theory and practice; it explores the possibility of differences between left and right handers; it discusses evidence for the existence of a functional relationship between handedness and language; it reports on the expression of language processes within a normal subject population and it reviews the application and interpretations of commonly used methodologies. The results of experiments reported in this body of research are placed within the theoretical framework which has been constructed, in the literature, for the purpose of understanding human cerebral laterality.
