Lateralization of Brain Function

A longitudinal fissure separates the human brain into two distinct cerebral hemispheres, connected by the corpus callosum. The sides resemble each other and each hemisphere’s structure is generally mirrored by the other side.  Despite the strong anatomical similarities, the functions of each cortical hemisphere are managed differently.  Broad generalizations are often made in popular psychology about one side or the other having characteristic labels such as “logical” or “creative”. These labels need to be treated carefully; although a lateral dominance is measurable, these characteristics are in fact existent in both sides, and experimental evidence provides little support for correlating the structural differences between the sides with functional differences.  Adapted From Wikipedia
