The ontogeny and asymmetry of the highest brain skills and the pathogenesis of schizophrenia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The most developed and the latest-to-mature mental skills represented in the creation of mono- versus polysemantic contexts are related respectively to the left and right frontal lobe. A polysemantic way of thinking is responsible for the subject's successful integration in the polydimensional world. The functional insufficiency of this right-hemispheric way of thinking displays a predisposition toward the development of mental disorders, including schizophrenia.
