The functional integrity of the corticospinal tract (CST) is of crucial importance for fine and independent finger movement. Therefore, it has been frequently speculated that interhemispheric asymmetries in this tract might be associated with handedness. The objective of the present study was to examine this proposed relationship, by studying the effects of handedness on macro- and microstructural properties of the CST. For this purpose, 30 consistently left and 30 consistently right-handed… CONTINUE READING
