Hemisphere Differences in Event Related Potentials and CNV’s Associated with Monaural Stimuli and Lateralized Motor Responses
Hemispheric lateralization of cerebral processing of various kinds is well established, but the electrophysiological concomitants of such lateralization have proved more difficult to demonstrate. In the auditory system the principal projection is accepted as being to the temporal cortex contralateral to the stimulated ear, but with secondary projection to the ipsilateral temporal cortex. Lateralized motor resposes are, of course, even more clearly a function of the motor cortex contralateral to the responding limb.
