The Yakovlevian torque in the cerebrum (exaggerated). Redrawn from Toga & Thompson. Mapping brain asymmetry. Nat. Rev. Neurosci. 4, 37–48 (2003). DOI 10.1038/nrn1009.
Yakovlevian torque (also known as Occipital bending (OB)) is the tendency of the right side of thehuman brain to be warped slightly forward relative to the left and the left side of the human brain to be warped slightly backward relative to the right. This is responsible for certainasymmetries, such as how thelateral sulcus of the humanbrain is often longer and less curved on the left side of the brain relative to the right. It is named for Paul Ivan Yakovlev (1894–1983), a Russian-Americanneuroanatomist from Harvard Medical School .
