Abstract

Neuroanatomical, neurochemical and functional studies have recently provided evidence of lateral asymmetry in mammalian brains, including human brain. For example, asymmetries in concentration, activity and distribution of several neuroconstituents (9), in the effect of drugs (10, 11) and in thickness of cerebral cortex (5) have been clearly observed in the rat brain. Several studies have also demonstrated lateral asymmetry in human brain. Probably the first asymmetry was described by Heschel (14), who observed right-left differences in cortical folding. Recently it has been shown that the planum temporale is significantly larger and longer on the left in the majority of infant and adult human brains (8).
