  is the ultimate product of Mental Activity.

Each thought involves simultaneous signals in many areas of

The Neocortex,
The Thalamus,
The Limbic System,
The Reticular Formation !

(SeeSee Divisions Of CortexFigure C )

language, memory, self awareness, as well as many aspects of mood and affect, constitute different manifestations of Intermediary Processing taking place
within the Tertiary Zones of the brain,
(as the Association Cortex is called).

These zones lie within a boundary between the Frontal, Temporal, and Parietal lobes of the Neocortex which include  Brodmann's areas (22), (37), (39), and (40).
They also include the Hippocampus and Amygdala - areas into which the Neocortex projects impulses and from which it receives reciprocal neural connections (resulting in unconscious mental activity . . . or thought).

The function of the Association Cortex is to integrate the information arriving from different sensory systems.
   It is in these tertiary zones, that sensory input is translated into Symbolic Processes, and concrete perception is translated into
Abstract  Thinking.

Man's  Ambidextrous  Brain

      «The most singificant creative activities of a culture
- legal and ethical systems, art, music, science and technology -
are the result of collaborative work by
The  Left  And  Right  Hemispheres.»

      Should one surgically sever The Corpus Callosum in half (a procedure referred to as Commissurotomy) ; the neural connection between the two cerebral hemispheres would be destroyed, thus giving rise to two independently functioning hemispheres.
      Studies have shown that after such a division, seperate learning and memory can continue in both the Left Hemisphere and in the Right Hemisphere.   Each hemisphere of the brain being able to sense, perceive, and even to conceptualize independently of the other.   Left Hemisphere processing relies primarily on tight connections between vertical columns of neurons of the Neocortex, whereas Right Hemisphere processing depends on the weaker and longer horizontal connections.
      Further investigation supports findings which indicate the existence of many other functional differences in the Left vs. Right Hemispheres.  Some specialists go so far as to say that the two hemispheres are different brains !

The  Left Hemisphere

      correlates roughly with the higher functions involved in
The Conscious Mind!

The Left Hemisphere

      It is considered to be the Verbal Hemisphere responsible for the majority of our speech functions.    Phoneme production, word choice, syntax, grammar, and semantics constitute the formal linguistic aspects of speech, and are controlled by the Left Hemisphere of the brain.
      This hemisphere tends to be sequential, temporal and digital, dealing with rapid changes in time and analyzing stimmuli in terms of their details and features.  The Verbal Hemisphere

      Stated another way:

     The Left Brain is:
  • Abstract:  Taking out a small portion of information and using it to represent the whole thing.
  • Analytic:  Figuring things out step-by-step, and part-by-part.
  • Digital:  Using numbers as in counting.
  • Linear: Thinking in terms of linked ideas, one thought directly following another.
  • Logical:  Drawing conclusions based upon logic; one thing follows another in logical order.
  • Rational:  Drawing conclusions based upon reason and facts.
  • Symbolic:  Using a symbol to "stand for" something else.
  • Temporal:  Keeping track of time, sequencing one thing after another.   Doing first things first, and second things second.
  • Verbal: This hemisphere uses words to name, describe, and define items.

(SeeThe Män SignLangûage )

The  Right Hemisphere

      corresponds roughly to activities involved in
The Unconscious Mind!

The Right Hemisphere

      It is considered to be the Silent (or Quiet) Hemisphere responsible for processing information on a more symbolic or metaphorical level.   The Right Hemisphere controls the paralinguistic aspects of speech involved in communication.
      There is a right hemispheric dominance in the auditory perception of emotional material such as laughing or crying.   There is a left ear (right hemisphere) advantage for identifying the emotional tone of the voice, and at the same time a right-ear (left hemisphere) advantage for identifying its content.   The encoding (displaying) and decoding (understanding) of emotional expressions through variations in prosody and facial expression are aspects of paralinguistics.
      The right hemisphere is specalized for the recognition of faces.   Another is it's ability to comprehend situational context through Analogical (nonverbal) means.   This hemisphere deals with the recognition of musical notes, environmental sounds, visuo-spatial stimuli, simultaneous relationships, and with the more global properties of patterns.  The Silent Hemisphere !

      Stated another way:

      The Right Brain is:
  • Analogic: Understands metaphorical relationships, and seeks likeness between things.
  • Concrete:  Relating to things as they are, at the present moment.
  • Holistic:  Seeing whole things all at once;  perceiving the overall patterns and structures, often leading to divergent conclusions.
  • Intuitive:  Making leaps of insight, often based on incomplete patterns, hunches, feelings, or visual images .
  • Nonrational: Not requiring a basis of reason or facts;  willingness to suspend judgement.
  • Nontemporal:   Incognizant of time.
  • Nonverbal: Awareness of things, but minimal connection with words.
  • Spatial:  Seeing where things are in relation to other things, and how parts go together to form a whole.
  • Synthetic:  Putting things together to form wholes.

      Analytical Operations of the brain are as follows:
  1. The brain can focus its attention on specific types of information.
  2. Separate qualities of each set of information signals are split away from the central signal and are transmitted to multiple areas of the brain.
  3. The brain compares the new information with old information in its memory loci.
  4. The brain determines patterns of stimulation in response to its considerations.
