Abstract

In contradistinction to the traditional approach focusing on functional interhemispheric differences, in the paper attention was paid to the phenomena of functional equipotentiality of and co-operation between the cerebral hemispheres. The phenomena in question were exemplified by studies on junctions of the hemisphere non-dominant for speech. Research findings reported in the paper indicate that for an efficient performance of these junctions collaboration of both differently specialized cerebral hemispheres is often necessary.
