Several studies have also shown that handedness and language dominance are unique capabilities of the human : Richard Passingham. Cerebral Dominance. The concept of cerebral dominance refers to the functional inequality of the cerebral hemispheres.

It does not hold that the right hemisphere controls the muscles of the left side of the body or that it receives the bulk ofthe sensory information relating to the left side, andthat theopposite is true for the left hemisphere.

With regard to cerebral asymmetries, no other theory distinguishes the causes of handedness from the causes of modal cerebral dominance. For McManus's theory, the D allele is for typical CD as well as right-handedness, but atypical cases require further chance by: Cerebral Dominance.

Cerebral dominance describes how typically one hemisphere of the brain has more control over particular functions than the other hemisphere. For example, individuals who are right handed have a dominant left hemisphere for language.
