3 thoughts on “Developmental plasticity and lateralization of function for language

  1. Really interesting talk! I do have a question.
    In perinatal stroke survivors, do all other functions (which are supposed to be carried on from the “lost” part of the LH) reverse-lateralize with such brilliant results as language? And if not, why so? Is it that language is easier to reverse-lateralize? And why?

  2. A practical comment: The fact that 97% are left-lateralized and 75% of left-handers are too, that’s an argument that we should not exclude left-handers from, e.g. syntax ERP studies.

  3. Fascinating work. Would you expect less left-lateralization of language functions in L1-speakers of tone languages?
