The distribution of lateralization according to sex were investigated among 7000 students which were selected from secondary and high schools in Gaziantep. in female students out of 2379 the number 2219(93.27 %) were right handers, the rest 160 (6. 72 % ) were left handers. in male students out of 4621 the number of 4314 (63 %) were right handers and the rest 307 (6.64 %) were left handers.
