Estradiol-related variations in top-down and bottom-up processes of cerebral lateralisation

Hodgetts, Sophie, Weis, Susanne and Hausmann, Markus (2017) Estradiol-related variations in top-down and bottom-up processes of cerebral lateralisation. Neuropsychology, 31 (3). pp. 319-327. ISSN 0894-4105

Item Type: Article


Natural fluctuations of sex hormones have been shown to modulate cerebral lateralization in dichotic listening tasks. Two recent studies presented contradictory notions regarding the mechanism of this effect. Specifically, whereas Hjelmervik et al. (2012) suggested that estradiol affects lateralization by enhancing top-down processes, such as cognitive control, Hodgetts, Weis, and Hausmann, (2015) suggested that the effect was attributable to estradiol-related variations in bottom-up aspects of lateralization.
