The Relationships Between Cerebral Dominance and Different Mental Abilities.
Reynolds, Carl; Bartek, Elmer
Using a sample of 77 10th grade boys, the researchers studied the relationships between the mental abilities measured by the Differential Aptitude Tests and cerebral dominance (CD: the extent to which one hemisphere of the brain dominates the other for control of behavior). The surprise finding was that CD was negatively related to spatial relations abilities. Previous research, though scanty, has suggested a positive relationship. Possible reasons for the discrepancies among the findings are offered. (Author)
