Abstract

This comment intends to draw the argument away from assumptions that handedness is the major cause of asymmetry in upper limbs, suggesting possible explanations of forelimb asymmetry could derive from asymmetry in the main trunk or differential influence of male sex hormones on development around the shoulder region.

Keywords: Directional Asymmetry, Rhesus Macaque, ulna, humerus, forearm, male sex hormones, handedness
