In this post I want to share a video about the divided brain, in which Psychiatrist Iain McGilchrist takes us on a fabulously well explained journey… I watched it a few years ago (loved it) and then had the chance to rediscover it on the weekend… The brilliant (RSA) animation emphasises the points he makes with both clarity and humour – 12 minutes I absolutely recommend :)
Left vs Right brained…?
I am by nature left-right confused (don’t ask me directions) – so, when people ask “Are you left or right brained?” I have to stop and think, and then I can’t remember which one does what, so I ask “Which side is less mathematical?”
In an ideal world, you would hope that both sides of the brain are happily working together, especially after watching the video – where Iain McGilchrist explains how the divided brain has altered and changed our society – not necessarily for the better:
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
