Within the field of learning disabilities, there is a concept of
crossing the midline.  There is likely more than one reason why this
might occur including the idea of microscopic injury points/loss of
insulation/whatever in the corpus callosum (or other area/areas).
Within a small subpopulation of the mild ADHD syndrome, there is at
least one report where a mild CNS agent, an FDA approved medicine, a
special caffeine compound, tended to temporarily correct a challenge
involving fine motor control/crossing the midline (reported by Anita
Uhl Brothers, M.D., of Berkeley, California in 1981).
