Lateralisation

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.

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)
