Science and the Left and Right BrainJanuary 5th, 2012 by Thea Pueschel
I wanted to take a moment and share with you this brilliant summary of how the left and right brain work. This brief video, through entertaining animation, shows a lecture provided by renowned psychiatrist and writer Iain McGilchrist. It explains how our ‘divided brain’ has profoundly altered human behavior, culture and society. It breaks down how the right brain is more integrated with our bodies/experiences and has a sense of ‘presencing’ and how the left hemisphere simplifies information, reducing experience to a few totems/symbols. This video explores how both hemispheres are important for reason and imagination. Please give this enlightening brief video a viewing.
