… and then just getting debunked again, this time here:
Scientists say notions of 1 creative half, 1 logical one are “urban myths.”
There is a grain of truth to it — the left side of the brain is more involved with language and the right evaluates the outside world, Anderson said.
But in an analysis of a database of resting brain scans of 1,011 people between the ages of 7 and 29, he and a team of researchers found no evidence of one side of the brain working alone more often, or people having a stronger neural network on one side over the other.
Though some connections are stronger than others, those tend to be localized rather than lateral.
But it’s just too good a mechanistic materialist thesis to succumb to fact.
