Mirror writing ability in right- and left-handed adults: Ipsilateral control? Academic Article uri icon


  • Right- and left-handed brain-intact adults wrote a set of sentences in normal script using either the right or left hand followed by the same sentences in mirror-reversed script using either the same or opposite hand. Greater accuracy of mirror writing was found when the opposite hand than when the same hand was used as that used for normal writing. The findings are interpreted as support for an ipsilateral hemisphere-hand control over mirror writing performance.
