Brodmann's area 44, gestural communication, and the emergence of right handedness in chimpanzees

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):224-225 (2003)

The target article by Corballis presents an interesting and novel theoretical perspective on the evolution of language, speech, and handedness. There are two specific aspects of the article that will be addressed in this commentary: (a) the link between Broca's area and gestural communication in chimpanzees, and (b) the issue of population-level handedness in great apes, notably chimpanzees.
