People often say “left vs. right” when it comes to brain functions (even I did in the blog title!) but it’s clearly more of a ‘left and right in tandem’ than ‘versus’ – after all it’s not like people who code can’t make art or people who dance can’t write. The brain is pair of two cerebral lobes, and even those are made up of multiple sub-lobes, in addition to other areas and parts like the brain stem, cerebellum, and more. Basically: we’re complex! In addition to the infographic (below) the blog post further breaks down the areas and associations with their inner workings – amazing how we’ve even deduced knowing where memory is located, or which side processes music, etc.
Neuroscientists and psychologists all around the world have put great effort into investigating the functions and differences of the left and right brain.
The existence of differences between left brain and right brain have been proven by many studies. Especially valuable are the observations that have been made on brain injuries.
In this article, you will learn everything about the left brain vs. right brain, including their functions and characteristics.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

This infographic is a wild extrapolation on the supposed function of the brain’s hemispheres and does not encourage a good understanding of neuroscience or the way science is done in general. In fact, citation number one is about research that refutes the idea that certain areas of the brain do certain types of thinking.
