Emotion Is Reversed in Left-Handers' Brains | Psychology Today | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it
Motivation, the drive to approach or avoid physical and social stimuli, is a basic building block of human emotion. For decades, scientists have believed that approach motivation is computed mainly in the left hemisphere of the brain, and avoidance motivation in the right hemisphere [2]. Brookshire’s study challenges this idea, showing that a well-established pattern of brain activity, found across dozens of studies in right-handers, completely reverses in left-handers.
