What is this hand clapping test good for

Sometimes during medicals I have been asked to clap my hands really fast while keeping swithing between palm down/palm up on one of the hands and the other hand just stays palm up. What is that test supposed to tell and what is considered a pass?

I think it has to do with right brain/ left brain functioning/switching.

Are you being tested for parkinsons?

It's all a matter of perspective!
