In brief: Some differences

The dominant hemisphere usually determines the dominant hand, so, left hemisphere in right handers, but right hemisphere about only 40% left handedness.
Pre-dominant speech connections over dominant side, especially left again. Yet delirium might occur from a stroke on the right side near temporal, parietal, occipital junctions.
