Research advances reported by Heilman and co-workers demonstrated that:

A cortico-limbic-reticular network mediates attention.
In most people, the right hemisphere is dominant for attending to both sides of space (see hemispatial neglect).
In most people, it was the right hemisphere of the brain that was important for emotional communication (prosody).
Skilled movement (praxis), such as tool use, is controlled in most people by a left hemisphere modular network where the parietal lobe contains the representations of the spatial trajectories for these skilled movements, and the frontal lobe transforms this into motor codes.
The right hemisphere's parietal lobe controls the autonomic nervous system.
First to describe orthostatic tremor.
