Right Brain/Left Brain
« on: 25/07/2006 15:57:10 »
So we all know humans have different tasks associated with the right and left brain.  Do these tendencies exist in all primates?  What about other animals like dolphins, or mammals in general?  Is this also true of other animals as well?

im not sure its even so clear-cut as applied to humans. again and again this "left brain-lingual and literal" "right brain-spacial and intuitive" analysis has proven more complicated.
