The Brain of Two Hemispheres

  • Leslie J. Waguespack


The realm of design, both in terms of appreciating extant artefacts (design-as-a-noun) and the practice of inventing artefacts (design-as-a-verb) is a distinctly human behavior. The physiology of the brain exhibits a clear and definite bifurcation referred to as the left and right hemispheres. After millennia of evolution the two hemispheres have developed distinct, but complementary modes of intellectual behavior. Their distinctness of orientation and conceptualization plays an important role in the processing of our sensory experience (in-the-world) and our conceptualization that impacts recognition, interpretation, and decision making (of-the-world).
