Samenvatting

State-of-the-art research on brain asymmetry, explained from molecular to clinical levels. Hemispheric asymmetry is one of the basic aspects of perception and cognitive processing. The different functions of the left and right hemispheres of the brain have been studied with renewed interest in recent years, as scholars explore applications to new areas, new measuring techniques, and new theoretical approaches. This volume provides a comprehensive view of the latest research in brain asymmetry, offering not only recent empirical and clinical findings but also a coherent theoretical approach to the subject. In chapters that report on the field at levels from the molecular to the clinical, leading researchers address such topics as the evolution and genetics of brain asymmetry; animal models; findings from structural and functional neuroimaging techniques and research; sex differences and hormonal effects; sleep asymmetry; cognitive asymmetry in visual and auditory perception; and auditory laterality and speech perception, memory, and asymmetry in the context of developmental, neurological, and psychiatric disorders.

Recensie(s)

It is not often that one finds an academic textbook that is timely, cutting edge, and well integrated. This new text on hemispheric lateralization ranges from genetic studies of differential hemispheric expression of proteins in the brain to evolutionary theories of speciation. It could easily be used as a graduate textbook for an advanced-level cognitive neuroscience course of hemispheric lateralization. -Simon M. McCrea, PsycCRITIQUES
