Hemispheric Specialization and Cognitive Development: Implications for Mathematics Education
Wheatley, Grayson, H.; And Others
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 9, 1, 20-32, Jan 78
Evidence is presented for the theory that the two brain hemispheres process stimuli differently: the left hemisphere is specialized for logico-analytic tasks and the right hemisphere for visuo-spatial tasks. They contend that cognitive ability is related to the development of hemispheric asymmetry and present implications for mathematics education curriculum. (MN)
