Cerebral asymmetry: From survival strategies to social behaviour

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):613-614 (2005)
We describe a possible link between coordinated lateralised group behaviour serving species survival in lower vertebrates and a striking lateralisation phenomenon found in human social behaviour: the universal preference for cradling a young infant on the left side. Our exploration offers a different perspective on the role of cerebral asymmetry for the survival of both the individual and the species.
