In this study, we examined the relationship between a measure of cerebral lateralization—differences in tympanic temperature (TTy)—and questionnaire measures of inattentiveness and hyperactivity in both people and dogs. Theories of cerebral lateralization indicate that cerebral asymmetry may improve attentive behaviour. In people, greater left than right TTy was related to increased self-reports of inattentiveness. There was no relationship between lateralized TTy and hyperactivity. In dogs… CONTINUE READING
