abilities is important in vertebrates, in that it generates individuals with new behavioural phenotypes, in a way which would not result from complete reversal. The probable mechanism is that abilities normally separate in their functioning compete more strongly when combined on one side of the brain. Partial reversal of abilities occurs in humans. Left handedness and right hemisphere language are associated (Knecht et al., 2003). However, this is not accompanied by reversal of ability to… CONTINUE READING
