Medical science is always evolving. Viewpoints regarding health and biological function that were once thought to be true are no longer scientifically supported. One misconception from the past is left versus right brain theory.

Current thinking is that while activity is higher in certain regions, both hemispheres are typically more or less equal in their activity. Below is a look into this school of thought on left and right brain dominance and activities that utilize each side.
