Research on handedness continues to be done in a quest to demystify handedness and what determines one’s handedness. We share links to past and newly released research on left-handedness. Chris McManus, Professor of Psychology and Medical Education at the University College London says while there are a lot of studies on handedness worldwide, there are not many done in Africa. He admits that while some promote that there is an advantage to being left-handed, the word is still out as to what that advantage actually is.
