The role of biological components as related to language processes has received increased attention in recent years. Evidence from a variety of different methodologies has indicated the presence of early hemisphere differences in young infants. Yet the relationship between such early differences and later language development has remained unclear although several recent reports suggest a marked relationship between the two. The present paper examined the relationship between such lateralized responses in young infants and performance on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary test at three years of age.
