Abstract

A total of 37 candidates for temporal lobe resection for epilepsy completed the Lateral Dominance Examination, a self-report instrument that measures hand and foot preference. Questionnaire results were compared with speech dominance, which had been determined by Intracarotid Sodium Amytal Procedure. Footedness was as good as handedness as a predictor of language laterality.
