Lateralization Theory

Lateralization theory proposes that the right and left hemispheres have differing functions while working interdependently; the left hemisphere controls the body’s right side and vice versa. The left brain is believed to be generally concerned with hard facts, discipline, and logic. On the other hand, the right brain is responsible for holistic thought, creativity, motor skills, and self-awareness. This theory proposes that a certain hemisphere dominates while carrying out functions. For example, the right hemisphere is primarily utilized in art activities as it needs creativity, idea generation, and imaginative thinking.
