Oregonian editor Susannah L. Bodman led her new weekly science news roundup on Sunday with the study done by UO psychologist Edward Vogel.

"Here's something to ponder when next you're watching basketball, tennis, or really anything or anyone in motion: Neurons in your brain, to keep track of objects moving from left to right or right to left, hand off the job of following that visual information in a manner akin to track starts passing the baton during a relay race," writes Bodman.

The research was first reported in the UO news release: "Oregon researchers capture handoff of tracked object between brain hemispheres"
