Scientific American Frontiers - Pieces of Mind: The Man with Two Brains (Teaching Guide)
"Pieces of Mind: The Man with Two Brains" explores the work of Dartmouth neuroscientist Michael Gazzaniga with a patient with severe epilepsy whose connection between his brain's two hemispheres was severed to stop the seizures. Dr. Gazzaniga's work with so-called "split-brain" patients has given him a unique perspective into how the brain perceives and communicates. The activity Left and Right Brains helps students understand what happens when the bridge between the left and right sides of the brain is disconnected.
