dc.description.abstractThe most basic elements of culture which separate humans from other animals are the efficient use of tools and the development of language. Evidence is presented suggesting that a key mutation for lateral dominance formed part of the biological basis for the sUbsequent development of culture which is dependent upon handedness for the efficient use of tools, and upon cerebral speech asymmetry for the lateral localization of language functions.en
