    Abstract : In this thesis lateralization of olfactory functions was investigated by both behavioral and electrophysiological assessment, the latter with the olfactory event-related potential (OERP) technique. The olfactory sense is primarily ipsilateral in that a stimulus that is presented to one nostril is initially processed in the same hemisphere. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of functional asymmetries in young infants A sensory-motor approach

    Abstract : Human functional laterality, typically involving a right-sided preference in most sensory-motor activities, is still a poorly understood issue. This is perhaps particularly true in terms of what underlying mechanisms that may govern lateral biases, as well as the developmental origins and course of events. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stroke in geriatric patients - Aspects of depression, cognition and motor activity

    Author : Berit Agrell; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]

    Abstract : Six depression rating scales, GDS, Zung, CES-D, CPRS-D and Cornell, were compared in 40 patients. The validity was good for all scales except for the Cornell scale. A comprehensive investigation was done in 116 elderly stroke patients. There was no difference in prevalence and severity of post-stroke depression in relation to side of lesion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sensorimotor behavior in children born preterm and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy Side preference, movement organization, and training

    Abstract : Preterm birth (< 37 complete gestation weeks, GWs) is the single most prominent risk factor for the development of cerebral palsy (CP). This is due to the immature physiological state of the preterm born infant which increases the risk of brain lesions. READ MORE
