No longer viewed as a characteristic unique to humans, brain lateralization is considered a key property of most, if not all, vertebrates this field of study provides a firm basis from which to examine a number of important issues in the study of brain and behavior. The different specialization of the left and right side of the brain may increase brain efficiency—and some evidence for that is reported here however, lateral biases due to brain lateralization (such as preferences in the use of a limb or, in animals with laterally placed eyes, of a visual hemifield) usually occur at the population level.

Brain lateralization defines different learning functions in the left- and right-brain hemispheres 3 stress (an affective filter) intervenes between the act of learning and what is to be learned the lower the stress, the greater the learning.
