Abstract

Laterality refers to the dominant function of a hemisphere. The brain has an anatomical symmetry, but it is characterized by a functional asymmetry that allows important emphasis for the three-dimensional perception of space and for the psychic selectivity in general (Neveanu, 1978). The repartition of the functions occurs in the left or in the right hemisphere and this represents the lateralization process (Parain D., Moscato M., 1984). The relative specialization of the hemispheres does not occur simultaneously; on the contrary, preferences will be expressed in childhood, and they will stabilize only afterwards.


The objective of this paper is to promote the education of laterality, in close contact with ambidextrous meaning that the larger capacity of the individual spatial orientation, coordination, temporal, but also the creator of thinking, better communication between the two hemispheres.
