Notes that high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging allows in vivo quantification of the surface area of the cortex covering the planum temporale. Reviews the definition of planum asymmetry as it relates to structural accompaniments of disorders such as developmental dyslexia and to anatomic and functional lateralization. Finds support for the assumption that planum (a)symmetry underlies functional lateralization. (RS)
