We have recently reported a correlation between schizophrenialike symptoms and the degree of pseudoneglect in healthy right-handers. We aimed to investigate the effect of familial sinistrality (FS) on this relation. Seventy-six healthy right-handers were divided into four groups on the basis of gender and FS. A computerized version of Corsi's task was used(More)
OBJECTIVE Visual evoked potentials (VEP) have been used to estimate interhemispheric transfer time (IHTT). However, the complex wave of VEP is most probably formed by different generators of neural populations that act through different frequency channels. If the main peaks of VEP are established by different types of generators, which can also be connected(More)
In this research different aspects of foot preference were examined in 50 participants. The relationship between foot preference, hand preference, and hand/foot-tapping performance was analysed in detail. For foot preference, a practical behavioural test consisting of 14 daily foot movements was developed. After statistical analysis, five items were(More)
Many studies suggest that separate retinocortical channels with different conduction speeds transmit the information about high and low spatial frequencies (SF). Similarly, separate callosal channels may be responsible for the transfer of different SFs. To test this hypothesis, interhemispheric transfer time (IHTT) was estimated using visual evoked(More)
OBJECTIVE In this study, the validity and reliability of the hand preference item of a 13-item questionnaire adapted from Chapman and Chapman (1987) were investigated. METHOD This questionnaire requires subjects to indicate which hand they usually use for various actions as follows: writing, drawing, throwing, using a hammer, using a toothbrush, using an(More)
The aim of this study was to re-investigate the relationship between handedness and asymmetry in hand performance, and the sex difference in motor asymmetry. Three-hundred and ten medical students volunteered as subjects. Handedness was assessed by a 13-item questionnaire adapted from Chapman and Chapman. Fine motor performance was measured using a finger(More)
A correlation between magical ideation scores and the size of relative right-sided hemispatial inattention was previously reported for healthy right-handed men performing a tactile line-bisection task. To re-investigate this relation, a computerized version of Corsi's Block-Tapping Test was used to test working memory. In this version, different numbers of(More)
There are conflicting results regarding the functional asymmetry of the prefrontal cortex. Spectral power analysis of electroencephalographic (EEG) activity can provide important clues about the cortical mechanisms. In this study, interhemispheric EEG alpha power asymmetry of healthy individuals was investigated during the execution of the Wisconsin Card(More)
This research aimed to investigate callosal transfer in the different frequency bands of VEP to lateralized reversal of checkerboard pattern as stimuli. The chosen band pass filters (4-8 Hz, 8-15 Hz, 15-20 Hz, 20-32 Hz) were applied to the VEPs of subjects, and four different components for each VEP were obtained. Latency differences between hemispheres for(More)
The effect of sex on the phenomenon of pseudoneglect was assessed in 60 male and 61 female right-handed subjects using a modified form of Corsi's block-tapping test. A significant right-lateralized pseudoneglect for both sexes was found, and the level of pseudoneglect strongly correlated with neglect in the right hemispace. Men were significantly more(More)
