    Claudia L R Gonzalez
    Canadian Institutes of Health Research Group on Action and Perception, Department of Psychology, University of Western Ontario, London N6A 5C2, Canada
    J Neurophysiol 95:3496-501. 2006
    ..We conclude that visuomotor mechanisms encapsulated in the left hemisphere play a crucial role in the visual control of action and that this hemispheric specialization evolved independently of handedness...

    C L R Gonzalez

    Claudia L R Gonzalez
    CIHR Group on Action and Perception, Department of Psychology, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada N6A 5C2
    Exp Brain Res 182:275-9. 2007
    ..Our results show that handedness in left handers does not extend to precision grasp and suggest that right handedness for visuomotor control may reflect a universal left-hemisphere specialization for this class of behaviour...
  4. ncbi Chronic low-dose administration of nicotine facilitates recovery and synaptic change after focal ischemia in rats
    Claudia L R Gonzalez
    Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience, University of Lethbridge, 4401 University Drive, Lethbridge, AB T1K 3M4, Canada
    Neuropharmacology 50:777-87. 2006
    ..The results suggest that the behavioral enhancement in the stroke+nicotine group might be attributable to the enhanced dendritic growth in residual cortical motor regions...
  5. ncbi Action rules: why the visual control of reaching and grasping is not always influenced by perceptual illusions
    Melvyn A Goodale
    CIHR Group on Action and Perception, Department of Psychology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario N6A 5C2, Canada
    Perception 37:355-66. 2008
    ..This latter finding suggests that some of the critical components of the encapsulated (bottom-up) systems that mediate the visual control of skilled reaching and grasping movements are lateralised to the left hemisphere...
  6. ncbi The relationship between fMRI adaptation and repetition priming
    Tzvi Ganel
    Department of Psychology and CIHR Group on Action and Perception, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada N6A 5C2
    Neuroimage 32:1432-40. 2006

    Synapse 55:183-91. 2005
