Left-Handers Faster in Sports and Computer Games

Of course the Hubby has been telling me this all along since he's a lefty, but now there is a study to prove it: Left-handers 'think' more quickly.

This report is from the BBC News site:

Left-handed people can think quicker when carrying out tasks such as playing computer games or playing sports, say Australian researchers. 

The fast transfer of information in the brain makes left-handers more efficient when dealing with multiple stimuli.

Experts said left-handers tended to use both sides of the brain more easily.

Study leader Dr Nick Cherbuin from the Australian National University measured transfer time between the two sides of the brain by measuring reaction times to white dots flashed to the left and right of a fixed cross.
