This last post is about another of those talks with interesting topics; this time it´s name is The Divided Brain by McGilchrist.
Talk about the brain isn´t a simple thing because the brain isn’t a puzzle with different parts and every part it´s a function of the brain. The brain it´s a complex system made of connections. But whit this talk we can say that the brain has two hemispheres with some differences between them. These hemispheres were forming along the evolutionary chain until now where we have a right hemisphere and a left hemisphere well differenced and connected by the corpus callosum.
Even the hemispheres have some differences McGilchrist breaks the myth of the reason, emotion, language and vision being in only one hemisphere; those things are all connected with the two hemispheres, the same goes with the imagination.
The principal difference between the two hemispheres is the perspective or the level of generalization of things. Meanwhile you use the right hemisphere for things more sustained, broad, open, and vigilant, the left hemisphere is narrower, sharply and focused.
Those two sides are always trying to inhibit each other. But it´s not like one side is better than the other; we need to use both sides in order to equilibrate the two points of view… “Too close you can’t see anything; too far you can read it”
Well, that everything folks, maybe I will keep writing here, maybe not, who knows.
Now I´m going to study for the last tests, see you~.
