Schizophrenia and Left Handedness

Read more... Schizophrenia Biology

An new review related to schizophrenia and left handedness covers the changes to the structure of the brain, including which part of the brain deals with which functions have often been thought to be important in schizophrenia. Several studies have noted a higher rate of left-handedness in schizophrenic people although some scientists think this is due to ambidextrousness rather than genuine left-handedness. A recent review of 40 studies into 'handedness' and schizophrenia found that schizophrenic people were more likely to be left-handed although there was often a lack of consistency about the way in which handedness was defined.
