Hand preference and eye dominance were investigated in 73 ( 30 women, 43 men) schizophrenic patients and 71 (30 women, 41 men) healthy controls. There were significantly more schizophrenic patients and normal controls who were significantly right-hand dominant. However, schizophrenic patients showed a significant excess of left-eye dominance relative to controls (65.8% vs 29.6%); Odds Ratio= 4.75, p < .001). In addition, female schizophrenic patients showed a higher rate of nonright (either left or inconsistent) eye dominance (80%) than male schizophrenic patients (55.8%) and controls (33.3%). Analysis of hand performance on the Purdue Pegboard Test indicated that schizophrenic patients who showed crossed eye -hand dominance scored higher than did patients without crossed eye-hand dominance.
