Biological and Neuropsychological Mechanisms: Life-Span Developmental Psychology

By Hayne W. Reese; Michael D. Franzen | Go to book overview

a function of being lateralized has been demonstrated. There is no particular type of ability for which uniform lateralization is in evidence across species. There is no general explanation for lateralization beyond the fact that for the functions in question, bilateralization would confer no additional advantage, because they are not targeted at specific locations in ambient space. If it ultimately turns out that humans have a particularly rich repertoire of lateralized cognitive processors, this would most likely be because they have more processors that do not target their activity on specific points in space, rather than because lateralized processing underlies and enables the human aptitude for higher mental function.
