Null findings on laterality are of interest

Posted by deevybee on 06 Mar 2011 at 17:21 GMT

It's a shame the null findings from this study are buried in the paper and not reported in the Abstract. There's a lot of controversy about heritability of handedness, for instance, and those in this area would be interested in the data.

No competing interests declared.
