Left brain/right brain
Your brain is divided into right and left halves. Experts are not certain how the "left brain" and "right brain" may differ in function, except:
- The left half controls movement on the body's right side.
- The right half controls the body's left side.
- In most people, the language area is chiefly on the left.
