Developmentally, the arm preference precedes handedness

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):238-239 (2003)

Abstract
I would like to stress that early development repeats the evolution of the species. Hence, to understand the origins of functional brain asymmetry and the underlying mechanisms involved in handedness, we have to seek information not only from what we know about human evolution, but also from how an early hand preference develops in our own species.
