The Split Brain Theory by Roger Sperry
About 90% of the population are right-handed. Another way to refer to people who use their right hand is to say that they are dominant.
It follows that most of the other 10% of the population is left-handed or "left hand dominant."
There are few people who use each hand equally; they are "ambidextrous."
