Outside of cognitive neuropsychology, it is often assumed that differences among individuals in cognitive activity may be adequately represented theoretically in terms only of quantitative variation across a population. A possible exception to the presumption of homogeneity within cognitive processing is explored here. It is shown that left-handed and right-handed populations exhibit consistent, qualitative differences in their remembering of orientational information. It is concluded that the subject matter of cognitive science may be more heterogeneous than is commonly assumed.
