Right Brain-Left Brain Function: A Primer

You often hear that a creative person is a “right-brain person,” while the more logical tend to be “left-brained.” In the latest primer from the Dana Foundation, we get to the bottom of this oversimplification of right and left brain function.

Dana primers are published quarterly and past topics have included neurotransmitters, genetics and the brain, hormones and the brain, stroke, and neuroanatomy. For a list of all primers, click here.
