Why is it called Edinburgh Handedness Inventory?

Aside from having a name which relates to our capital city, Edinburgh Handedness Inventory is actually quite an interesting thing.

Essentially it’s a measurement scale which is used to to assess which hand a person uses. It’s basically just a short questionnaire. Why is it called the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory?  I couldn’t really figure that one out. But the reason is probably something to do with the fact that the psychologist is from our great city.

If you want some fun, why not try the test yourself?
