    Department of Psychology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 2130, USA
    Cognition 108:837-42. 2008
    ..The results showed that speakers interrupted themselves not at the moment they detected the problem but at the moment they were ready to produce the repair. Speakers preferred fluency over accuracy...
  2. ncbi request reprint Metaphor explanation attenuates the right-hand preference for depictive co-speech gestures that imitate actions
    Sotaro Kita
    School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK
    Brain Lang 101:185-97. 2007
    ..Findings suggest that the activation of the right hemisphere in the metaphor condition reduces the likelihood of left hemisphere generation of gestures that imitate action, thus attenuating the right-hand preference...
  3. doi request reprint Generation of co-speech gestures based on spatial imagery from the right-hemisphere: evidence from split-brain patients
    Sotaro Kita
    University of Bristol, Department of Experimental Psychology, Bristol, UK
    Cortex 44:131-9. 2008
    ..It is concluded that the linguistically non-dominant (right) hemisphere alone can generate co-speech gestures based on spatial imagery, just as the left-hemisphere can...
  4. doi request reprint The nature of gestures' beneficial role in spatial problem solving
    Mingyuan Chu
    School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, England
    J Exp Psychol Gen 140:102-16. 2011
    ..We concluded that gestures enhance performance on spatial visualization tasks by improving the internal computation of spatial transformations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)...
  5. doi request reprint Spontaneous gestures during mental rotation tasks: insights into the microdevelopment of the motor strategy
    Mingyuan Chu
    School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
    J Exp Psychol Gen 137:706-23. 2008
    ..When solving a problem regarding the physical world, adults go through developmental processes similar to internalization and symbolic distancing in young children, albeit within a much shorter time span....

    Hedda Lausberg
    Department of Neurology, Free University of Berlin, Hindenburgdamm 30, D 12200, Berlin, Germany
    Neuropsychologia 41:1317-29. 2003
    ..Rather, the results provide support for theoretical models that consider the left hemisphere as specialised for processing the right half of space during the execution of descriptive gestures...

    Hedda Lausberg
    Department of Neurology, Free University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany
    Brain Lang 86:57-69. 2003
    ..The influence of hemispheric language lateralization on the hand choice in co-speech gestures appeared to be minor. Instead, speaking seemed to induce a sequential organization of the iconic gestures...
