q & a

Is it true that the left hemisphere is “rational” and the right hemisphere is “emotional”?


No, it is not. This notion has gained popularity in “tabloid science”, but it is too simplistic, as is another notionclaiming tatthe neocortexis “rational” and the limbic structures are “emotional.” Both hemispheres participate in emotional regulation, and so do both the neocortex and the limbic structures.
