 Discussion 1

In PSY 108, you learned about old beliefs on left brain/right brain function, and current knowledge on how the two parts of the brain function separately and work together.

After reading Chapter 2 of your text, and watching Split Brain Behavioral Experiment, address the following questions in your initial discussion post:

  • How did the video influence your thoughts about the topic of left brain/right brain?
  • What would your reaction be to a person’s claim that they are right-brained or left-brained? In other words, is hemispheric specialization absolute or relative (feel free to also search the internet to get your answer to this)?
  • Did the results of the studies depicted in the video surprise you? Why or why not?
  •  Keep in mind that right-handed males are most likely to show cerebral asymmetry, especially for language. Differences are not as common in right-handed females or left-handed people of either sex.
