    M Annett
    Department of Psychology, University of Leicester, UK
    Behav Genet 29:103-14. 1999
    ..Transfer of right-handed children from R x R to R x L families, thereby raising the percentage of left-handed mothers by about 1%, is sufficient to give good fits to RS predictions for both sexes...
  2. doi request reprint Patterns of hand preference for pairs of actions and the classification of handedness
    Marian Annett
    School of Psychology, University of Leicester, Leicester, UK
    Br J Psychol 100:491-500. 2009
    ..The pattern of findings was repeated for a corresponding analysis of left-handed throwing x AHPQ actions. The findings have implications for the classification of hand preferences and for analyses of the nature of hand skill...
  3. ncbi request reprint Tests of the right shift genetic model for two new samples of family handedness and for the data of McKeever (2000)
    Marian Annett
    University of Leicester, Leicester, UK
    Laterality 13:105-23. 2008
    ..Findings for sex differences do not suggest a need for hypotheses about X-linked mechanisms...
  4. ncbi request reprint The distribution of handedness in chimpanzees: estimating right shift in Hopkins' sample
    Marian Annett
    School of Psychology, Medical Sciences Building, University of Leicester, Leicester LE1 9HN, UK
    Laterality 11:101-9. 2006
    ..Whereas the human distribution is shifted by about 1.0 z, that of chimpanzees in the sample of Hopkins, Cantalupo, Freeman, Russell, Kachin, and Nelson (2005) is shifted by about 0.32 z...
  5. ncbi request reprint Schizotypy is increased in mixed-handers, especially right-handed writers who use the left hand for primary actions
    Marian Annett
    School of Psychology, Medical Sciences Building, University of Leicester, Leicester, LE1 9HN, UK
    Schizophr Res 81:239-46. 2006
    ..This observation was replicated in 182 students assessed on the Rust Scale of Schizotypal Cognitions. Several findings agree that inconsistent hand preference is associated with a raised probability of schizotypal thinking...
  6. ncbi request reprint Hand preference observed in large healthy samples: classification, norms and interpretations of increased non-right-handedness by the right shift theory
    Marian Annett
    School of Psychology, University of Leicester, UK

    M Annett
    Department of Psychology, University of Leicester, UK
    Cortex 36:485-505. 2000
    ..The success of the present application of the RS theory strengthens the argument that individual differences for hand preference depend on a continuous distribution of asymmetry, not on the 'types' commonly assumed in the literature...

    M Annett
    Psychology Department, University of Leicester, UK
    Schizophr Res 39:177-82. 1999
