Using Both Sides of the Brain

Student Reflection

  • Sit at a computer and type your name.
  • Look back at each letter. Which side of your brain typed each one?
  • How many times did the signals switch back and forth?
  • Now read your name.
  • Your eyes send their separate signals to opposite hemispheres, but somehow you see a single picture.
  • What must your brain be doing to combine sensations into one perception?
  • Before you study or do homework, try connecting both sides of your brain through movement.
  • Can you dance or move to music by connecting the different sides of your body?
