Handedness and the Brain

Are you left handed? Know someone who is? You might enjoy some of the information in an article that was recently published in the Wall Street Journal. For example:

• On average there is no significant difference in IQ between righties and lefties

• There is some evidence that lefties are better at divergent thinking, or starting from existing knowledge to develop new concepts,

• Lefties have an advantage in sports such as tennis, fencing and baseball, when up against a righthanded competitor, but not in noninteractive sports such as gymnastics.

Check it out.
