The right brain controls driving in traffic. On the right, processing is rapid and non-linear. The right brain looks at the big picture and deals with complexity, ambiguity, and paradox. It is intuitive and the crucible of creativity (Pitek, 1998). For example, if you are right-brain dominant, it is your emotional right hemisphere that guides the decisions you make throughout the day. If you are left-brain dominant, it is your sequential, time-oriented... Right Brain in a Left Brain World Our educational...

In this paper, focus would be on biological causes of crime which the Ministry of Justice, New Zealand (2009) justify by citing the physical body as the cause of crime through inherited genes, brain structures, evolutionary factors or hormonal action. Of specific concern in this paper will be to link biochemical conditions and also brain activity to crime. This will be achieved by borrowing from various secondary sources and using examples... appropriately. Crime refers...

...BRAIN PATIENTS. The brain is an amazing organ that keeps on working since the day a human is born till the day he dies. The brain is responsible for keeping a balance between the five senses and mainytain coordination and communication between the organs and the various systems. There are two halves or hemispheres distinct in their function, in the brain. They are the left and the right halves, and in all normal human beings, they are connected by a dense accumulation of nerves called the Corpus Callosum. In late 1800s two neurobiologists Paul Broca and Carl Wernicke found that in patients with epilepsy of the brain the two hemispheres are not connected and hence there is observable...
