Brain Myth?


“The left and right side of the brain have different capabilities.”


Ruling:
False. Common misconception.

Analysis:
The brain has no solid functional division; some functions activate some areas more than others, but that’s about it. The left side of the brain can learn functions which were previously solely present in the right side of the brain and vice-versa.
