Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment EEG correlates of handedness
I haven't read that, but they're likely going to just be correlations that may have little to do with the actual "handedness" difference. Look into hearing, as a small percentage of left-handed people have their dominant cortices for speech and language shifted to the other side. This is not a reliable indicator, though, as even most left handed people have the same placement of Broca's area, etc.

comment Are “diagnostic” senses/feelings for brain study possible?
It's related, but not exactly what you are seeking: check out Kevin Warwick who has used himself as a test subject in the "new senses" research you are speaking about.

@what I was just teasing by putting a country name in my statement to add weight :) It did need some clarification, and thanks for providing it.

A full reference and a link would be helpful to those looking for the book. I suspect you're talking about amazon.com/Incognito-Secret-Lives-Brain-ebook/dp/B004J4WK9W/… but I don't know.
