The preference to use one hand over the other is already defined by the 18th week of gestation, a new study reports.
Researchers report, following a lobectomy, the left hemisphere of the brain compensated for visual tasks in a young boy. The findings, researchers say, provide a detailed characterization of plasticity in the developing brain.
