In conclusion, in the brains of outstanding right-handed people (Haeckel, Monakow, Pilsudski) the more complicated convolutional and fissural patterns were found on the left hemisphere; in those of outstanding left-handed people (Menzel, Edinger) on the right one. The second brain reported here revealed some overdevelopments on the right, others on the left hemisphere. Strangely enough, very little is known about side-differences in the average brain. It seems that the middle frontal convolution and the inferior parietal lobe are more developed on the right hemisphere, the inferior frontal convolution on the left one. Nothing is known about the handedness of the bearers of brains showing these side-differences.
