Understanding the working of a Human Brain:
Human brain is made up of two halves. These halves are commonly called the right brain and left brain, but should more correctly be termed ‘hemispheres’. For some reason, our right and left hemispheres control the ‘opposite’ side of our bodies, so the right hemisphere controls our left side and processes what we see in our left eye while the left hemisphere controls the right side and processes what our right eye sees. The concept of right brain and left brain thinking developed from the research in the late 1960s of an American psycho biologist Roger W Sperry. He discovered that the human brain has two very different ways of thinking. One (right brain) is visual and processes information in an intuitive and simultaneous way, looking first at the whole picture then the details. The other (left brain) is verbal and processes information in an analytical and sequential way, looking first at the pieces then putting them together to get the whole. Sperry was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1981.
