Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, Division of Brain Mapping, Most biological systems demonstrate some degree of asymmetry (Geschwind and Galaburda, ). Brain-mapping approaches, in particular, can identify and visualize patterns of asymmetry in whole populations, including subtle alterations that occur in disease.

Abnormal brain asymmetry is also linked to numerous cognitive and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Hemispheric asymmetry is one of the basic aspects of perception and cognitive processing. Toga and Paul M.
Rightward asymmetry can be seen in the right central sulcus potentially suggesting increased connectivity mapping brain asymmetry motor and somatosensory cortices in the left side of the brainlateral ventricle, entorhinal cortex, amygdala and temporo-parieto-occipital area.
Sex-dependent brain asymmetries are also common. It will be of great value to psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, and cognitive neuroscientists.
