Abstract

Specifically the experiment sought an answer to the following questions: (1) Is there evidence for a critical area in the cerebral cortex for the control of handedness, and if so, what are the limits of this area, i.e., what is the least destruction within this region that will produce transfers in handedness? (2) Will a destruction outside of the critical area have an effect, and if so, how large must such a destruction be to cause it? (3) What bearing will the results have upon current theories of cerebral functioning, including localization of function, physiological gradients, mass action, and equipotentiality?
