Questions of Brain Hemispheric Specialization and Gender Difference in Spatial Tests.
McWhinnie, Harold J.
This paper presents a review of selected literature relevant to a general question of hemispheric specialization (right or left brain) and questions of gender differences in spatial abilities among a group of art students. Three basic questions for discussion are proposed: (1) is there a relationship between hemispheric dominance and spatial intelligence?; (2) is such a relationship gender based?; and (3) what are the implications for art education from these selected studies? The paper is designed as a means of generating hypotheses concerning gender differences that could be employed in future empirical research in this general area. The paper refers to selected studies and was conceived as a review paper in which the integration of bodies of research is presented in relationship to education in the arts. Contains 30 references.
