Pick a Hand, Any Hand: Mixed-Handedness and Night-Sky Watching in a College Student Sample
Kelly, William E.
College Student Journal, v43 n1 p228-233 Mar 2009
This study explored the relationship between handedness and interest in night-sky watching. University students (N= 128) completed the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory (Oldfield, 1971) and the Noctcaelador Inventory (Kelly, 2004). The findings indicated that mixed-handed participants scored highest on noctcaelador relative to those classified as either left or right-handed. The results and suggestions for future research are discussed.
