Tale of Two Brains


Thursday, September 14, 2006

Right-brained people are supposed to be artistic and spontaneous, while left-brainers are literal and analytical; in other words, Captain Kirk and Spock. This ubiquitous bit of pop science wisdom came out of Nobel Prize-winning neurology, and it spawned the bestseller Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. But does the story of the two brains stand up in the age of the MRI? Produced by Dave Johns.

Hi Michelle -- That's Leon Cargil singing “Right Brain Left Brain Thing” from his album "Lifetime Guarantee" (CCR Records). Enjoy!
