Similarities and Differences
Visual information can be confusing (Macqueen, 2011).
Disconnection syndromes (Uddin, 2011)
Self-representation evaluation and self-related processes (Uddin, 2011)
Two hemispheres exist with different brain communication processes (Uddin, 2011).
Information can still be processed through both hemispheres (Uddin, 2011).
Different identities are formed (Macqueen, 2011).
Sharing a brain with another human being (Uddin, 2011).
Two hemispheres exist and surgically severed (Uddin, 2011).
Personhood in split-brain individuals explores self-representation and self-relating processes. They each have their own personalities, visual stimuli, and cues. Their processes are defined by the ability to explore self-recognition, ownership, and agency. Information can still be transferred through subcortical pathways only when the cortical commissures are no available. (Uddin, 2011).
The self can be explained through the following (Uddin, 2011):
Self Cognitive Phenomenon
I hope you all enjoyed learning something new or reviewing my research and findings on split brain. There is so much more to this phenomenon. What is stated here are facts you can add to your knowledge base.
