Inheritance of ocular dominance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
