THE BRAIN / INDEPENDENT SIDES AND FUNCTIONS

 

To give you a better idea of the differences between the 2 sides

of the Brain, here is a list borrowed from Robert E. Ornstein.

I thought that this text would assist those who were interested.

 

THE LEFT SIDE THE RIGHT SIDE

and scientists. people, musicians.

 

 

NOTE: It is the right side of the brain, that tends to be

neglected, beginning as children whe we were encouraged

to focus on the three R’s, later as teen-agers when we

were admonished to stop daydreaming, still later as

young adults when everything that seemed important to

us required developing our left-brain talents.

But while we strengthened and nurtured our intellects,

we weakened and all but forgot about the intuitive and

spontaneous side of ourselves. Although it continued to

function, we became insensitive to it.

Fortunately, some people never lost touch with this part

of themselves; among them are those who give us the art

and poetry that embellish our lives.

I trust you can use this information in your quest to see the

potential of the power of the human brain. It has answered

many questions that I’ve had in various areas, and now it makes

sense.
