I will compare the performance of people with intact brains with the performance of so-called split-brain patients. In many ways, the brains of these two groups are very similar. 1 a. For example, the brainstem exists at the base of the brain connecting the brain and spinal cord and has no functional differences between an intact and split brain patient. Being the most primitive part of the brain, its structure does not change because each component, the medulla, reticular formation, and pons, are vital for our survival.

    Grayce Petruzzi Professor Chesire-Brown PSY-P 101 16 October 2015 Myth or Not? Before doing research on the topic if some people are “right-brained” or are “left-brained”, this statement means that if you are logical or analytical then you are left-brain dominant, while the creative and artistic types are right brain dominant.

The right hemisphere instead controls the left side of the body, visual-spatial…

    perfectionist, I do not have a very strong communication skills and I am very “left brained” according to many. Being a perfectionist can be seen as a positive but I can only see it as an inhibitor in the learning process to become a peer counselor. Being a perfectionist, makes me want to not leave any problem unsolved or to give the best advice possible all the time.
