Hi Bloggers!! This is my last post for this semester! WOW! It's amazing how fast the time goes by!

This semester has been insane!!! a lot of proyects! a lot of work! a lot of studies!

And now at the very end of this semester, the quantity of readings for the final exams are a lot too!!!!, I feel totally wacko!!!!

Well, but that is not enough reason for don't post the last entry for the blog of this semester!!!!!!

So let's start. As last homework, our teacher left us a video about a psicology subject, the division of the brain.

In the video, the Psychiatrist called Iain McGilchrist, explain with cartoons, the real differences between the left and right halves of our brain.

He said that the division of the brain is something that neuroscientists don't like to talk about anymore, but in the past, between '60s to '70s was a popular subject, after the first brains operations. People always thought that the brain was divided between a reason side, and a emotional side; but the real thing is, that the brain It's not simply "emotion on the right, reason on the left;" It's something so much more complex and interesting to studied.

We also saw this subject in our psychology class, in the book called: "psychology and life," And we learn ( my classmates and I) that one of the most important things about brain is the corpus callosum, wich is a fiber that connects the two cerebral hemispheres, and makes the brain processes have meaning for ourselves.

When you divide the corpus callosum, you separate the functions of the brain, so if you are subjected to this operation, It is probably that you can't understand some actions of your body, for example, see with your right eye, what your left hand is taken, Etc.

For find out more about this topic, watch the video about it:

That' s all folks! xoxo, Jazzy.
