Welcome to Mimicking Man Manually

A little about the name...

Handedness is as much a behavioral feature of humans as their ability to talk. The two are intimately connected. When something happens to the major hemisphere (the one opposite the dominant hand) affecting the dominant hand it is very likely to also affect the person's ability to understand speech and to talk normally. The anatomical nature of this relationship has recently been sorted out. Such details are included in this web site.

It is my hope that this new information may someday be used for the betterment of our lives everywhere.

Please feel free to communicate with me via email on technical details of the subject.

Sincerely Yours
I. Derakhshan, MD
