Pitch memory: An advantage for the left handed: bibliographical excerpts


"In an auditory or musical task, subjects made pitch recognition judgments when the tones to be compared were separated by a sequence of interpolated tones. The left-handed subjects performed significantly better than the right-handed and also had a significantly higher variance. Further analysis showed that the superior performance was attributable largely to the left-handed subjects with mixed hand preference." (Deutsch, D. (1978) Pitch memory: An advantage for the left handed. Science 199: pp. 5590
