What Are Those Hemispheres in your Brain Doing?

If you are interested in the brain and especially in what the two hemispheres are up to, you'll like this.

Iain McGilchrist, London psychiatrist and author, has narrated an RSA animation about the left and right hemispheres of our amazing brains.

Much of popular understanding of the functions of the left and right hemispheres is incorrect (language, for example, does not reside solely in the left hemisphere).

The reality is much more interesting.

If you enjoyed this animation you may want to read McGilchrist's rich and broad book on this subject, The Master and His Emissary. (And the "Master" is not what you might be guessing.)
