The last decade of laterality research has been bolstered by a significant broadening in theoretical framing and investigative approaches. Comparative research contributions continue to strengthen the position that ancient functional and anatomical brain biases are preserved in modern humans. However, how they unfold over developmental time and contribute to cognitive abilities is still unclear. To make further advances, we must position human brains and behaviors within an evolutionary framework. This includes viewing motor-sensory behavior as an integral part of a developing cognitive system.
