Etaugh, Claire; Levy, Rhonda B.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v53 n2 p621-22 Oct 1981
Witelson found that boys but not girls showed right-hemisphere specialization for tactile-spatial processing as early as six years. Witelson's task was administered to 46 normal four- and five-year olds. Both sexes showed right-hemisphere specialization. No sex differences appeared either in specialization or in overall performance. (Author/SJL)
