Left-and right-handed human males and females were tested in an experimental analog of free-field observational studies which had demonstrated rotation (turning) biases in both rats and humans. When required to rotate through exactly twice 360 degrees clockwise (rightwards) or anticlockwise (leftwards) with reduced sensory input, dextrals, especially females, showed a rightwards bias and sinistrals a leftwards tendency. When attempting, blindfolded, to walk in a straight line, all four groups… CONTINUE READING
