Intermanual transfer of adaptation to rearranged ear-hand coordination produced after exposure to a 30 degrees shift of the interaural axis was investigated by use of electronic pseudophones a binaural microphone earphone array worn on the head. Results showed that except for one exposure condition, changes in ear-hand coordination that occur to compensate the distortion induced by pseudophones fail to transfer intermanually. Such results suggest a differential representation of the sensorimotor function between the hemispheres.
