    Thanks for the pointer on lefties and their enhanced corpus callosums. I wonder how many ScienceBloggers are left-handed?

    I’m a linguist, but I’ve never heard the claim that lefties use both sides of the brain in language as Dr. Williams claims in the article. A quick google didn’t bring up anything. Know of any sources on this Dave? Granted, I’m a syntactician, not a psycho-linguist, so maybe I should just ask some of my colleagues on that side of the discipline.

    I don’t know of any sources offhand, and Greta’s out of town, so I can’t ask her right now. I do know that left-handers brains aren’t simply mirror images of right-handers, which is why they are usual excluded from brain research.
