Split Brain Syndrome

Spilt brain syndrome, as define by Health Guide, is the brain actually divided into two separate halves with the corpus collosum connecting the two halves together. I found spilt brain syndrome very fascinating. I am so amazed by how the brain works.

Many people think that the left brain works for the left side of the body and the right side of the brain works for the right side of the body but that isn't true. The left side of the brain controls the functions in the right side of the body and the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body. Some people get it get confused when thinking about it.

As I was reading the Health Guide, they gave a scenario about a woman who have split brain syndrome. The woman was given a deck of card to hold in her left hand and the doctor asked her what she was holding and she couldn't tell what she was holding. She could see exactly what she is holding but couldn't speak out the word of what it actually is. Then the doctor moved the deck of cards to hold in her right hand and she immediately knew that it was a deck of card. From this experiment, this woman left brain hemisphere is better than her right brain hemisphere.

Health Guide also indicates that split brain has an impact on a person's personality. With the brain being spilt, it can some time, possible to develop two different personalities.

Split brain syndrome can be a strange thing, but it's fascinating!
