NIRSport seen on television

Our hands are versatile and we depend on them every day. But how do they work exactly and why is it easier to do some things with one hand than with the other?

A recent episode of the German/French tv-show Xenius dived into the interesting world of hands. In the excerpt below, sports scientist Dr. Daniel Carius of Leipzig University shows and explains which brain regions are activated during basketball when playing with the right hand (dominant), and left hand (non-dominant).

Interested to watch the full episode of Xenius? Until May 8, the full episode of Xenius is available on the Arte website:

Note: Unfortunately, the show is available in German and French language only!
