Handedness and hemispheric language dominance in healthy humans.
In most people the left hemisphere of the brain is dominant for language. Because of the increased incidence of atypical right-hemispheric language in left-handed neurological patients, a systematicExpand

Language lateralization in healthy right-handers.
Our knowledge about the variability of cerebral language lateralization is derived from studies of patients with brain lesions and thus possible secondary reorganization of cerebral functions. InExpand
