Writing direction

Posted this in linguistics but I forgot that community is pretty dead. Does anyone know anything/done research about the impact of writing direction on well.... ANYTHING. :P For example, why did Greek bother to switch to left-right when the writing systems it descended from were right-left? I remember seeing a paper about how this affects how people see their spatial environment, for example a person seeing the right first instead of the left, if used to reading right to left. Don't know where that paper went though...
