Left Brain & Right Brain Functions Explained

Differences Between Left & Right Brain Functions explained in 2 Lists:

The right side of brain hemisphere

The right side of brain hemisphere specialists in combining the parts to produce a whole. Unlike the left, the right hemisphere organizes things simultaneously. It specializes in a method that perceives and constructs patterns. It is most efficient at visual and spatial processing and it is thought that non verbal stimuli are processed primarily in the right side of brain hemisphere. A person with the right brain dominant is often thought of as the dreamers, the artists, and the musicians. Just because they are not as good with numbers and remembering facts does not mean that they are "dumber" than a left brain person.
