Does it help to know that the left hemisphere processes text while the right provides context? Maybe there are important implications that go beyond the “teaching to the right side of the brain” activities we’ve all heard about and perhaps tried in our classrooms. Perhaps we need to put more emphasis on teaching to both halves of the brain, since they work together all the time.

Identical neurotransmitter cocktails mainline through each of them, they listen to the same nonsense from other people, they look at the same TV programs, and they go to the same parties. And neither hemisphere operates anything on its own, any more than we walk with one foot or the other, or whether the area of a rectangle is dependent on its length or width. Almost nothing is regulated solely by the left or right hemisphere.

When the cerebellum receives information (in about 1/50th of a second) that the motor cortex has begun to initiate a movement, it computes the contribution that various muscles will have to make to perform that movement and sends the appropriate messages to those muscles. The action has begun. Throughout the action, the cerebellum continuously monitors and modifies the activity in the muscles, making the changes necessary for smooth completion of the action. These complex maneuvers are also necessary when a person is sitting or standing.
