Abstract : This report reviews evidence from several sources that conclusively shows the two hemispheres of the human brain have different functional organizations for cognition. The notion of hemisphericity--that there is a way of thinking that relies on one half-brain--is critically considered. Despite the reasonability of the assumption, there is, as yet, no good evidence to show that any procedure based on hemisphericity principles enhances learning potential. Keywords: Individual differences, Neuropsychology, Psychomotor function.
