It’s a well-known fact that the right side of the brain is creative while the left is more technical.

Many assume that depending on the person, one side is more dominant – similar to handedness.

Optical illusions and personality tests were designed to identify strengths and weaknesses that might indicate a person’s dominant hemisphere.

The easiest way to assess whether you are right-brained or left-brained is to determine whether math and science are easier than artistic endeavors, or vice versa.

Roger Sperry, a famous neuroscientist, pioneered the split brain theory.

His work grew out of surgeries performed on patients with unbearable epilepsy.

the corpus callosuma segment of the brain connecting the two hemispheres was removed from patients and the specialization of each side became evident.

Sperry was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery – luckily medical practices have evolved enough to allow everyone to do so corpus callosum can remain largely intact.

There is some resistance as to whether the premise is right-brain or left-brain valid.

Researchers argue that for creative endeavors like art and calculations like math, the brain relies on input from both sides of the brain.

Brittanica writes, “Mathematics is not only a logical but also a deeply creative endeavour… Likewise, artistic creativity is not just unbridled emotion.”

Although controversial, the theory is useful for self-analysis and identification.

The human brain is the most complicated organ in the most complex known organism.
