ERIN: Sorry to nitpick on your nitpick but actually there are some theories
about the relation of hemispheres and hunting.
In intelligence testing they look at gender differences.
Females have the advantage in language (LEFT HEMISPHERE). They on average
start earlier and most delayed language, stuttering, etc. are males..
Males advantage is spatial ability (RIGHT HEMISPHERE).
This advantage is often argued as a result from hunting.
