For example, in the case of vision, we know that what we see on our left is processed by the right hemisphere of the brain, while what we see on the right is processed by the left hemisphere

According to a research at Ruhr University synapses are vital for rapid processing of auditory speech, which is found to be more in the left hemisphere

A cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed because electroencephalography showed slowing in the background activity of left hemisphere
and left frontotemporal epileptiform activity.
Over the past few decades, studies found that people who have more left hemisphere

The family packed up and went to Cleveland Clinic for the radical operation that resulted in the removal the left hemisphere
