If you have any interest at all in the current state of research on cerebral lateralization, this is the book for you it's one-stop shopping for both the background and the most current, cutting-edge findings and theories. The authors and editors have done a superb job of presenting virtually anything a student, teacher, or researcher would want to know about the topic. -- Stephen M. Kosslyn, Dean of Social Science and John Lindsley Professor of Psychology, Harvard University This is a truly comprehensive book on the fascinating topic of structural and functional asymmetry. Its approach ranges from an evolutionary perspective to pediatric disorders, and a number of neurobiological methods are included. It should be the first choice for any student or scholar interested in the lateralization of the brain. -- Arthur Toga, Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, UCLA School of Medicine

Reviews

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
