Cognitive ability and continuous measures of relative hand-skill. a note

Kevin Denny

No 200805, Working Papers from Geary Institute, University College Dublin

Abstract: This note re-examines a finding by Crow et al. (1998) that equal skill of right and left hands is associated with deficits in cognitive ability. This is consistent with the idea that failure to develop dominance of one hemisphere is associated with various pathologies such as learning difficulties. Using the same data source but utilising additional data, evidence is found of a more complex relationship between cognitive ability and relative hand skill.
