Iain McGilchrist - The Divided Brain

This video provides an up-to-date discussion of what happens in the hemispheres of the brain. It quickly rejects the old emotional-rational, language-mathematical & other divisions, but explains just what happens in the two halves, and why.
(If the video fails, use this link)
This is another RSAanimate video produced by the excellent Cognitive Media team, who also produce A0 size digital files and prints of the final version of the talk. There are many other similar videos, but for content and visuals this is my favourite so far. You can also download an iphone* or android app from RSA that grants you access to the animated talks, the original lectures of these and more talks, and much more.

* Not that you would know what this post is about on your iphone because it does not support flash video.
