Abstract Surface electromyography was used to verify the lateral dominance in 100 six to fourteen years old normal children. Electromyographic records were obtained during verbal stimulation. Dexterity was found in 90, sinistrality in 3 and indefinite dominance in 7 patients. Comparing with results from clinical examination, the electromyography seems more accurate and easy to perform. The responses obtained after verbal stimulations were attributed to a psychomotor phenomenon. Mechanisms involved in the production of muscle contractions after verbal stimulation, were not proved. Pharmacologic action of cathecolamines on the central motor neural subsystems is advanced.

A dominância lateral foi verificada pelo eletromiograma de superfície em 100 crianças neurologicamente normais. Foram usados estímulos verbais durante os registros eletromiográficos. Em comparação com o diagnóstico clínico, a eletromiografia se revelou mais precisa, excluindo influências subjetivas nos resultados. Destrismo foi diagnosticado em 90 pacientes, canhotismo em 3 e dominância indefinida em 7. Mecanismos de ordem psicomotora são sugeridos para justificar as respostas motoras provocadas por estímulos verbais com conteúdo afetivo.
