Mögliche Ursachen eines wechselnden Handgebrauchs

Zusammenfassung

Wechselnder Handgebrauch wird oft als „Beidhändigkeit“ beschrieben und ist wahrscheinlich auch das Resultat geminderter Lateralisierung- bzw. Spezialisierungsprozessen. Es gibt Studien, die eine „Beidhändigkeit“ mit Problemen auch Verbindung setzen, andere Forschungsergebnisse weisen auf Vorteile hin. Um die „Beidhändigkeit“ besser zu verstehen, werden möglichen Ursachen untersucht, die für einen wechselnden Handgebrauch verantwortlich sein könnten. Es kann eine normale Variabilität des Handgebrauchs sein, die eine größere Effizienz ermöglicht, vor allem wenn beide Hände gute motorische Fähigkeiten haben. Aber es könnten des Handgebrauchs auch Entwicklungsverzögerungen, eine Umschulung auf die nicht-dominante Hand vor allem beim Schreiben, eine pathologische Links- oder Rechtshändigkeit sowie bestimmte Krankheitsbilder für eine geminderte Lateralisierung verantwortlich sein. Aufgrund einer Auseinandersetzung mit der Literatur versuchen wir wechselnden Handgebrauch anhand eines hypothetischen Modells zu differenzieren und auf einem Kontinuum einzustufen.
