Brain and hemispheric dominance

Historically, visual-spatial processing has been attributed to the right hemisphere and verbal processing has been attributed to the left hemisphere. Classic patience studies demonstrated a clear distinction in hemispheric processing as a function of content type. Recent functional neuroimaging evidence with healthy participants, however, challenges this interpretation as both hemispheres are implicated in processing materials with different content types (visual-spatial and verbal).   This seminar discussed hemispheric dominance with examples from fMRI studies on mathematical cognition.
