ABSTRACT:
Handedness is considered as the most obvious type of behavioral and cognitive asymmetry reported in human beings. Also we have footedness in the motor domain. This study investigated the percentage distribution and their significance for handedness and footedness in both sexes of adolescent age group in both left and right handers based on laterality preference inventory. Handedness got a significant result whereas footedness score has no significance based on the laterality preference inventory.
