Although they are structurally similar, the two hemispheres of the human brain have many functional asymmetries. Some of these, such as language and motor control, have been well characterized. Others, such as visuospatial asymmetries, are less well understood. Many researchers have noted that the right hemisphere appears to be specialized for visuospatial processing. We investigated the abilities of the divided cerebral hemispheres of two callosotomy patients to perform discriminations based… CONTINUE READING
