[The characteristics of motor asymmetry in the ontogeny of calves].

[Article in Russian]


The side of preference (first turn of head) was recorded in calves in situation of free equal probability two-sides choice, and rate of reconstruction of conditioned reflex to food presented from the left or from the right was determined. Initially the calves preferred the left turn, i.e. manifested motor asymmetry. Preference to the left turn changed depending on the calves age with the period of 22-23 days. The rate of conditioned reflexes reconstruction was higher in calves with the left-side preference. Correlation of the motor asymmetry and rate of conditioned reflex reconstruction in calves of different age changed in analogy with age changes of asymmetry. Probably the observed periodical changes of asymmetry and its correlation with the rate of reconstruction reflect formation of interhemispheric interactions in regulation of the organism functions in animals ontogenesis.
