Divided Brains: The Biology and Behaviour of Brain Asymmetries is written by the leading authorities in the field: Lesley J Rogers, Giorgio Vallortigara and Richard J Andrew. Their book is the first in-depth analysis of the topic and is written to appeal to a wide range of readers, not only scientists. It addresses lateralization of the brain from the perspective of Niko Tinbergen’s four questions: to look at the function, causation, development and evolution of brain laterality. In this interview, Professors Rogers and Vallortigara outline some important aspects of the book.
