Have you done personality tests which figure out whether you use more of the left or right side of your brain?

This video by the team at SciShow talks about the history of the common belief that people are either left-brained or right-brained.

You'd be surprised to know that much of this common understanding is actually an oversimplification of the facts from a study done by neurobiologist Roger Wolcott Sperry and Michael Gazzaniga.

Watch the video to get a better understanding of their fascinating experiments.
