The Divided Brain: Our brains are far more complex than a left/right split

This 11 minute video has been produced by Aeon Video. It concerns different ways in which we can look at and experience the world … ways that have profoundly shaped the kind of society and culture we live in, and strongly influenced our mental health and wellbeing.

The video producers say:

“The notion that the brain’s right hemisphere is responsible for emotion and its left hemisphere is responsible for reason has been debunked. But the two hemispheres are indeed distinct, albeit in much more complex ways than we once thought. Animated by Cognitive Media ( with audio excerpted from a lecture given at the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) by the British psychiatrist Iain McGilchrist, The Divided Brain takes a deep dive into the real differences between our two brain hemispheres.”
