Unifocus video: Debunking the myths of left and right-handedness

04 March 2015

Left-handers are supposed to be more creative than right-handers. But is this true? Large-scale public research by University of Groningen scientists prof. Ton Groothuis , dr. Reint Geuze and PhD student Nele Zickert together with the Weekend van de Wetenschap hopes to resolve the issue. 25,000 people have already completed an online test and completed dexterity exercises. What is remarkable is that twice as many lefties as right-handers and many more women took part. So we’re on the hunt for right-handed men! Go to www.helpeenhandje.nl .

Each episode of the weekly online video magazine Unifocus includes an item related to the University of Groningen, in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
