Some Cool Psychological Stuff…

Published March 13, 2014 by konchk

A very rare surgery severe epileptic patients can receive is one of severing the corpus callosum, which helps both the left and right hemispheres communicate with one another. Well, some pretty interesting stuff occurs in these patients. It turns out, that when the dear corpus callosum is severed, the patient seems to have “two” brains because of the inability for those halves to communicate. To put this in perspective, here is a video with good ole Alan Alda that explains this process much better than I do…Enjoy!
