Handedness was assessed using an adapted version of the Edinburgh inventory. Blind and sighted participants were classified as musicians if they had practiced a musical instrument or had vocal training for at least 2 years on a regular basis (at least 2 hours a week). A = Ambidextrous; M = male; F = female; DL = diffuse light; m = months; y = years; OS = left eye; OD = right eye; Cegep = 2 years of education between high school and university.
