Background: The ability to distinguish left from right has been shown to vary substantially within healthy individuals, yet its characteristics and mechanisms are poorly understood.
Objective and aim: The study was designed in an effort to spot the extents of Left-Right Confusion (LRC) among medical students in Mutah university and to investigate the relationship between LRC and multiple health and socioeconomic variables.
Methods: Analytic cross section study was performed. Database gathered by google sheet in order to introduce them to software. Before analysis, survey was checked for missing data, statistically analyzed by SPSS version 25.
Results: The prevalence in our sample was slightly lower than the prevalence reported in prior research, which was 14.7%, and this may be attributed to medical students greater level of education and overall understanding when compared to the general population.
Conclusion: It was found that there is a statistically significant link between gender, communication issues, and ADHD. The challenge now is where we go from here; since the relationship we discovered between ADHD and left-right confusion is novel, we need to carry further research to establish this unique association more solidly.
