Abstract

The paper presents an evolution of views on interhemispheric differences in language functions, with special emphasis on research and theoretical concepts dealing with the role of the non-dominant cerebral hemisphere in language processes. Manifestations of the co-operation between the two hemispheres of the brain, as well as the dynamic and relative character of hemispheric asymmetry in respect of language were described.
