Hand and the hemispheres
In spite of many attempts to prove otherwise, Homo sapiens (that's us) are indeed the "Lop-sided Ape". Why are we so one handed for things like writing and throwing? We now know this has something to do with asymmetries in the two cerebral hemispheres that make up our brain. This talk will explore this puzzling relationship, and we may explode a few myths (both good and bad) about left-handers along the way.
