By Glick,Stanley Glick

Cerebral Lateralization in Nonhuman Species explores mind asymmetries in animals and the level to which such asymmetries relate, in an evolutionary and scientific feel, to the pervasive asymmetries that represent the human mind. issues coated comprise cerebral lateralization in birds, rats, and nonhuman primates; the inheritance of path and measure of asymmetry within the mind; the morphology of rat forebrain; and edition within the development of behavioral and mind asymmetries as a result of intercourse alterations.
Comprised of eleven chapters, this ebook opens with a historic review of study into the cerebral lateralization of constructions and services in nonhuman species. The dialogue then turns to lateralization of vocal regulate in songbirds and lateralization of a number of behaviors in family chicks. The inheritance of course and measure of asymmetry is usually thought of, besides the morphology of rat forebrains. the subsequent chapters specialise in asymmetries in anatomy and pathology within the rodent mind; the hyperlink among mind lateralization and behavioral capabilities; and the way early stories can result in laterality. the ultimate bankruptcy analyzes the consequences of mind asymmetries for evolution, genetics, and medical syndromes.
This monograph should be an invaluable source for college kids, neuroscientists, clinicians, and different practitioners in fields starting from psychobiology and psychology to anatomical sciences, neurobiology, neurochemistry, and genetics.
