In this RSA Animate, author and psychiatrist Iain McGilchrist discusses the complex, divided brain. What we know about “left brain” and “right brain” certainly isn’t so black-and-white.
McGilchrist says, “For imagination, you need both hemispheres [of the brain]. For reason, you need both hemispheres” (Source). Instead of this very segmented brain that we all think of, McGilchrist argues that we instead an interconnected, unified brain. He explains how the two halves work together AND examines which side of the brain is undervalued in society today.
I always love RSA Animate talks, as my brain processes visual data much more quickly than it does the spoken word. What type of learner are you: visual, auditory, or kinesthetic? Find out here.
