Ontogenetic constraints on the evolution of right-handedness

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):234-235 (2003)
Abstract
Ontogenetic factors constrain the evolution of species-typical traits. Because human infants are born “prematurely” relative to other primates, the development of handedness during infancy can reveal important ontogenetic influences on handedness that may have contributed to the evolution of the human species-typical trait of a population-level right-hand dominance.
