Silvia will discuss handedness genetics at the next St Andrews Cafe’ Scientifique next Thursday 21 January, 7:30 pm at Aikmann’s Bar on Bell Street.

Everybody can easily say which hand they prefer for writing but what determines hand preference is far from being clear. Being left-handed has been associated to all sort of traits ranging from genius to psychiatric traits. At this event we will explore myths and facts of handedness and what we are learning with genetics research.
