Putting things right: "Why" before "how"

Research output: Comment/debate


In this commentary I argue for the need of an evolutionary account of lateralized behavior. Although one could raise some problems with the explanatory power of the present hypothesis, this is the approach one should pursue. It would be very important to show that the proposed idea of social coordination does indeed lead to selective advantages also when considered within a species.
