Asymmetries of the human social brain in the visual, auditory and chemical modalities

A. Brancucci, G. Lucci, A. Mazzatenta, L. Tommasi
2009 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
Structural and functional asymmetries are present in many regions of the human brain responsible for motor control, sensory and cognitive functions and communication.  ...  Here, we focus on hemispheric asymmetries underlying the domain of social perception, broadly conceived as the analysis of information about other individuals based on acoustic, visual and chemical signals  ...  Some lateralization has also been found in the amygdala: Wicker et al.
