Take-away from neuroscience


Recently I read that in 1981 a man named Roger Sperry received the Nobel Prize for his proof of the split-brain theory. That is: The left side of the brain is the analytical side, the right side of the brain is the creative side. Together the sides cooperate to become a complete functioning brain.


This brings to mind the political divide of Democrat and Republican, and how necessary is the cooperation between the “left” and “right” to make things work.
