    Helmut Prior
    Institut fur Psychologie, Goethe Universitat, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    PLoS Biol 6:e202. 2008
    ..They suggest that essential components of human self-recognition have evolved independently in different vertebrate classes with a separate evolutionary history...
  2. ncbi request reprint Selective feeding in birds depends on combined processing in the left and right brain hemisphere
    Helmut Prior
    Psychologisches Institut, Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universitat, Mertonstr 17, D 60054 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Neuropsychologia 46:233-40. 2008
    ..Our findings reveal a marked qualitative difference between unilateral and bilateral processing. They highlight an important but so far unexplored selection pressure for the evolution of hemispheric cooperation...
  3. pmc Lateralization of magnetic compass orientation in pigeons
    Christiane Wilzeck
    Psychologisches Institut, Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universitat, Mertonstr 17, 60054 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    J R Soc Interface 7:S235-40. 2010
    ..Our findings demonstrate bilateral processing of magnetic information, but also suggest qualitative differences in how the left and the right brain deal with magnetic cues...

    Christiane Wilzeck
    Psychologisches Institut, Goethe Universitat, Mertonstr 17, 60054 Frankfurt am Main, Germany

    Wolfgang Wiltschko
    Zoologisches Institut, Fachbereich Biologie und Informatik, J W Goethe Universitat, Siesmayerstrasse 70, D 60054 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Nature 419:467-70. 2002
    ..This implies that magnetoreception for compass orientation, assumed to take place in the eyes alongside the visual processes, is strongly lateralized, with a marked dominance of the right eye/left brain hemisphere...

    Bettina Diekamp
    Biopsychologie, Ruhr Universitat Bochum, Germany
