[23.] Saudino K, McManus IC (1998) Handedness, footedness, eyedness and earedness in the Colorado Adoption Project.
Though much emphasis has been given to handedness, few studies have investigated footedness (34) and eyedness (4,33,35,36) too.
Like handedness, studies investigating eyedness as one of the indicators of laterality in schizophrenia have reported contrasting results.
To the best of our knowledge studies describing footedness and eyedness in depression and eardness in schizophrenia are very few (40).
2.86% of them had left, 20% mixed, and 77.14% had right eyedness. Similarly, 5.71% had left, 22.86% mixed, and 71.43% had right earedness.
Eyedness was determined by which eye was open when the thumb remained oil (or the closest to) the target after closing the opposite eye (Parish & Huslig, 1991).
It was once thought that handedness was linked to eyedness, but this has been disproved.
(1993) The lateral preference inventory for measurement of handedness, footedness, eyedness, and earedness: Norms for young adults.
It was found that: (1) a large percentage of persons cannot tell which eye they would use at eyedness tasks; (2) that over one-third of all participants give inconsistent results (some trials use right eye, other trials the left) on the dominance task and about one-sixth are inconsistent on the preference task; (3) that a typical inconsistency profile for dominance is unlike that for preference; and (4) that dominance seems to drive preference.
Eyedness, which is less obvious and does not enjoy the diversity of task expression, is more often determined behaviourally and by means of only one or two repetitions of the same task.
Currently correlations between eyedness, earedness, footedness and handedness data are too low to make the case that they all involve some single central neural substratum.
