Right Brain/Left Brain

The human brain has two hemispheres: the right and left…

If this dichotomy exists, it’s because each hemisphere plays a particular role although not necessarily distinct.

The right hemisphere orchestrates everything that is concrete, the visualization of an object, parallel operations, perception of self, overall view. It is qualified as visual-spatial.

The left hemisphere orchestrates everything that requires a rapid and sequential perception, the manipulation of abstract concepts, such as mathematics, tasks of precision or structure. It preserves verbal and sound information. It is qualified as audio-temporal.
