The 2015 installment of The Year in Cognitive Neuroscience series features in-depth reviews exploring human brain lateralization. Specific topics include molecular genetics and genomics; changing views of language that offer new perspectives on the brain circuits and on their asymmetries; evidence showing that hemispheric lateralization is graded rather than binary and that it emerges dynamically over the course of development; the role that hemispheric lateralization plays in reasoning in the intact brain; a preliminary evaluation of two views of the evolution of hemispheric specialization with respect to behavioral and brain asymmetries in primates; and graded specialization within and between the anterior temporal lobes—key regions for the representation of semantic knowledge.
