Split-Brain Experiments

Anyone who took a psychology course in college (and that’s almost everyone) should remember the all important corpus callosum– that bundle of nerves in the middle of the brain that connects the left and right hemispheres. Without getting to science geeky, suffice it to say that while one can live an almost perfectly normal life if this is severed (which is sometimes done surgically to help alleviate severe epilepsy), some seriously weird shit can happen as a side effect, as demonstrated in this video.
