Left or Right Brain?

Difference Between Left and Right Brain

The left hemisphere is dominant in language: processing what you hear and handling most of the duties of speaking.

The right hemisphere is mainly in charge of spatial abilities, face recognition and processing music.

The left hemisphere controls the muscles on the right side of the body while the right hemisphere controls those on the left. This is why damage to the left side of the brain, for example, might have an effect on the left side of the body.
