Adult male right-handers showed the expected pattern of verbal intellectual decline following left-hemisphere lesions, and depressed nonverbal intelligence following right-hemisphere lesions. In contrast, right-handed women did not show selective verbal or performance intellectual deficits after unilateral brain injury. These findings suggest a greater degree of functional brain asymmetry in right-handed men than women.
