New Exciting RSAnimate Video: The Divided Brain

In this exciting video from RSAnimate, renowned psychiatrist and writer Iain McGilchrist explains how the right hemisphere pays wide-open attention to the world, seeing the whole, whereas the left hemisphere is adept at focusing on a detail. he right hemisphere sees things in context, as inseparably interconnected, it recognizes the vast extent of what remains implicit. 
By contrast, because of its narrow focus, the left hemisphere isolates what it sees, and is relatively blind to things that can be conveyed only indirectly.
