Available predictors of hospital readmission following withdrawal in alcohol-dependent patients are limited. However, such parameters are needed to optimize individualized treatment strategies. This study investigated whether crossed eye/hand laterality, eyedness, and handedness may predict outcomes in alcohol dependence.

The hippocampus is not a unitary, homogeneous brain area. Anatomical and functional specialization is evident along the septotemporal axis of the structure, and between the left and right hemispheres....
Handedness, one of the most prominent expressions of laterality, has been historically considered unique to human. This noteworthy feature relates to contralateral inter-hemispheric asymmetries in the...
While handedness questionnaires are widely used in adults, there is no comparable measure designed specifically for children. The current study developed the Home Handedness Questionnaire (HHQ), a new...
Handedness is the most investigated form of functional hemispheric asymmetries, but its neural correlates remain unclear. Functional imaging studies suggest differences between left- and right-handers...
The left inferior parietal lobe (IPL), a brain region localized to the ventro-dorsal stream, is known to be critical to motor imagery (MI) performance. Yet its specific role in processes underlying MI...
Chronic neck pain is one of the most common causes of pain, affecting 15% of the adult population, and the fourth leading cause of disability. The recognition of laterality is the ability ...
This study assess ocular movements in a hand laterality judgment task in a population of musculoskeletal disorders. Reaction time, error rate and visual strategy are compared between muscu...
In healthy individuals, unimanual movement (with either the left or right hand) is associated with activity in a network of predominantly contralateral brain regions, including the primary...
The study is aimed to investigate if chewing side preference (CSP) can be used as another indicator of hemispheric laterality in healthy adults. Healthy volunteers with no oral/dental prob...
After obtaining a consent, bed side cardiac ultrasonography will be performed for cases undergoing transesophageal echocardiography to evaluate the correlation between left atrium volume a...
Behavioral manifestations of cerebral dominance in which there is preferential use and superior functioning of either the left or the right side, as in the preferred use of the right hand or right foot.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.
Deformities of the hand, or a part of the hand, acquired after birth as the result of injury or disease.
A syndrome characterized by chronic, well-established DIARRHEA (greater than one month in duration) without an identified infectious cause after thorough evaluation, in an HIV-positive individual. It is thought to be due to direct or indirect effects of HIV on the enteric mucosa. HIV enteropathy is a diagnosis of exclusion and can be made only after other forms of diarrheal illness have been ruled out.
