Split Brain Research
Here is my slideshow on split brain patients, designed for synchronous online delivery with students who have already read up about the topic, in the textbooks for example. This was originally developed in google slides using the pear deck add on for the interactive elements, but WordPress will not allow me to link to google slides…if you would like to use the interactive features open in google slides, go to ‘add ons’ and search for ‘pear deck’.
If you would like to read from the original Sperry paper, find out more here.

Interesting snippets for evaluation:
- Dundas et al. (2015) – Face recognition is right side lateralised
- Collins and Mohr (2013) – Function becomes less lateralised with age – known as the HAROLD model (Hemispheric Asymmetry Reduction in Older Adults)
17-year-old Raffiel has badly injured his right hand, the hand that he usually uses the most. He has been trying to use his left hand in lessons as he wants to be as independent as possible. His art teacher has commented that Raffiel’s drawing skills seem to have improved since he began using his left hand.
Evaluate research into hemispheric lateralisation with reference to Raffiel and his art teacher.
