Hemisphere lateralization differences
A cross-cultural study of Japanese and American students in Japan
This paper reports on a cross-cultural study comparing the lateralization preferences between Japanese and American university students in Japan. The cross-cultural literature points to stereotypical descriptors which are similar to lateralization descriptors which provide significant differences in content when investigated by survey among the two ethnic groups. Cultural descriptors for the two groups are defined and the issue of preference for statistical- vs. feeling-oriented support for controversial local issues is linked theoretically to the left vs. right hemisphere preferences, but proves of limited validity for the study. Final results for the Japanese sub-sample for lateralization preference (64%) show a tendency for right-hemisphere processing preference over an American left-hemisphere preference (65%) in the same area.
