Brain activation lateralization in monkeys (Papio Anubis) following asymmetric motor and auditory stimulations through functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy

Hemispheric asymmetries have long been seen as characterizing the human brain; yet, an increasing number of reports suggest the presence of such brain asymmetries in our closest primate relatives. However, most available data in non-human primates have so far been acquired as part of neurostructural approaches such as MRI, while comparative data in humans are often dynamically acquired as part of…
