The perception of tools vs. other objects has been shown to activate the left premotor and somatosensory cortex, which represents object affordance associated with tool manipulability (Proverbio, Adorni, & D'Aniello, 2011). The question of whether hemispheric asymmetry depends on right hand use or is linked to a hemispheric functional specialization for fine-grained precision movement is unclear. Thus, in this paper, ERPs were recorded from 128 sites in response to the visual presentation of… CONTINUE READING
