A zetetic's perspective on gesture, speech, and the evolution of right-handedness

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):237-238 (2003)

Abstract
Charmed by Corballis's presentation, we challenge the use of mirror neurons as a supporting platform for the gestural theory of language, the link between vocalization and cerebral specialization, and the relationship between gesture and language as two separate albeit coupled systems of communication. We revive an alternative explanation of lateralization of language and handedness.
