Lefthandedness among students of architecture and music [see comments]
Journal/Book: Percept Mot Skills. 1990; 70: 1323-7; discussion 1345-6.
Abstract: Three groups of subjects (60 students of architecture and 88 of music, and 87 from a general student group) were assessed on lefthandedness, reading problems, dyslexia, and stuttering. There was a higher frequency of lefthandedness among students of architecture, as well as a higher frequency of reading difficulties, dyslexia and stuttering among students of architecture and music, than the comparison group. These findings were discussed in relation to Geschwind' s hypotheses.
