Webster, 1997, 1998), and so I will comment on them only briefly here. Some of the studies have involved sequential finger tapping whereby subjects tap telegraph keys repeatedly in certain specified sequences. The rationale for this methodology comes from the evidence that each hand is controlled by the opposite hemisphere, and so by studying finger tapping rates of the two hands one can infer something about how the mechanisms for the control of sequential movement are lateralized in the two hemispheres.

The critical words are planning and complex or sequential, words used earlier in the context of the finger tapping studies. 2. Second, there are rich intrahemispheric and interhemispheric connections involving the SMA. In fact most interhemispheric connections between the motor areas go through the SMA. 3. In light of the interhemispheric connections, it is not surprising that the area has been implicated as being crucial in bimanual coordination (and probably more generally in bilateral coordination).

For instance, and to use the same analogy, if the broken gear tooth was replaced (or if an alternative drive system was found), then the result might be a trivial matter as far as the health of the car is concerned. , 1996). Webster’s hemispheric laterality concept is that stuttering is characterized by an overflow of excessive activity from the right to the left hemisphere that causes interference in SMA. Caruso (1991) also partially used this idea by theorizing that the impaired neuromotor mechanisms underlying developmental stuttering reside in SMA or the basal ganglia.
