Abstract

Left- and right-handed subjects, selected on the basis of degree of hand preference and for the presence or absence of familial sinistrality, responded to monaurally presented tonal stimuli (440 Hz note played on four different instruments) using their right and left hands on separate occasions. It was found that in both the strong left-handers and the inconsistent strong right-handers, motor control of the hands was related to familial sinistrality (FS). Specifically, strong left-handers and inconsistent strong right-handers with FS have a difference in the motor control of the hands in the left hemisphere, with a left hemisphere-left hand advantage. Strong left-handers and inconsistent strong righthanders with no FS have a difference in the motor control of the hands in the right hemisphere, with a right hemisphere-left hand advantage.
