Cognitive Performance as a Function of Sex and Handedness: An Evaluation of the Levy Hypothesis.
Sherman, Julia
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v3 n4 p378-90 Sum 1979
Investigates incidence of left-handedness in high school students. Handedness did not affect math or verbal performance in 9th or 10th graders. For 11th graders, significant sex-by-handedness-by-measures interaction was found. Results do not support the hypothesis of Levy's that left-handedness decreases spatial performance and benefits verbal performance. (Author)
