The Divided Brain

You may already know that the theory about the right half of your brain being the imaginative, emotional half, while the left brain is the rational, detached half has largely been debunked. It persists because it is such a handy metaphor for describing the human condition. However there are differences between the two halves of our brain, which is described brilliantly by Iain McGilchrist, and superbly animated by RSAnimate. It is eleven minutes that both halves of my brain truly enjoyed – Jason Ohler on the 21st Century Fluency Project
