Lateralization

The tendency for some neural functions or cognitive processes to be specialized to one side of the brain or the other. Practically this results in left-handedness/right-handedness and left/right-footedness. Handedness and using the hands together skillfully and the ability to cross the midline of the body are building blocks of fine motor coordination.
