Happy Friday: Animation on ‘divided brain’ lecture

This Friday, enjoy this animation made to accompany one of Iain McGilchrist’s lectures about “the divided brain”. His argument is that our separate hemispheres of the brain (left vs. right) and sometimes conflicting functions have implications in modern culture and society.

I’m not sure if I agree with all of his points but they are interesting, and the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) has done a cute animation to go along with his part of one of his lectures (about 12 minutes).

  1. Animation is cool. He’s a bit contradictory with his statements, but I guess it’s consistent with what we know – which is kind of inconsistent and all over the place – that is, we really don’t know exactly how brain laterality really works.
