The two hemispheres, left and right, communicate with each other through a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers called the corpus callosum. They work with each other to make the normal human body functions work the way they do.


Hemisphericity

Hemisphericity referred to the idea that people rely on a preferred mode of cognitive processing that is linked to predominant activity of either their left or right cerebral hemisphere.

Different Sides, Different Functions

Left Hemisphere

The left hemisphere has "instructions" from the brain to preform the speech, logic, and math of a person. It is also responsible for controlling the right side of a body, including being able to write right handed. It is the academic and logical side of the brain.

The right hemisphere has "instructions" from the brain to control the left side of the body. It controls the artistic and creative abilities of a person. Most left handed people are left side dominant.

My Dominant Side

Before I took this quiz to see which side I am most dominant in, I always believed I was right brain dominant. But after my results from the quiz, it turned out I was a little more left brain dominant than my right. Therefore, I am more of a logical thinker, better with language, and I am also right handed. But somehow I am still awful at math.
