Michael Gazzaniga: Tales from Both Sides of the Brain
The two hemispheres of our brain specialize in different jobs—the right side processes spatial and temporal information, and the left side controls speech and language. How do these two sides come together to create one mind? Pioneering neuroscientist Michael Gazzaniga, author of the new book Tales from Both Sides of the Brain, discusses his early work on discovering how these halves communicate. Read an excerpt from the book here.
