  • RESEARCH INTERESTS
  • My research addresses developmental issues in hemispheric specialization, lateralization, handedness, motor development, and quantitative methods. I am interested in the lateralization of functions, and the relation of such lateralization to other systems which are developing simultaneously. Within the broad topic of lateralization, I have focused on unimanual and bimanual hand use, role-differentiated bimanual manipulation, tool use, construction, language, and embodied cognition. Additionally, I am particularly interested in applying new quantitative methodology to developmental studies. Departures from the traditional use of statistical methods into the land of longitudinal data analysis are frequent and especially stimulating for me.
