Inheritance of ocular dominance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Evidence for an inherited component in the determination of the preferred eye in sighting dominance is presented that replicates the earlier findings by Merrell (1957). Significantly more left-sighting-preferent individuals were found in the progeny of R×L and L×L matings than in the R×R matings.
