In the late 19th century a mild-mannered surgeon from Paris fostered a discovery that spurred a revolution. It spat in the face of the Church, upturned decades of intuitions, and was a turning point in the history of brain science. The two sides of our brain are different.
Take a journey in time and meet our tool-making ancestors, the first ever serial killers, and modern day researchers who have all partaken in the story of our asymmetric brains. Find out how Hitler influenced experimental psychology, why the Rosetta Stone is important to the split brain, and what everything from the big bang to amino acids have to say about being human.
I invite you to join me on this cerebral adventure, answering these questions (and more!) in this dark, deep, and outrageously thought provoking tale of our two sides.
