The procedure for the split brain syndrome involves severing the corpus callosum which is a thick band of nerve fibers that divides the cerebrum into two different hemispheres, the left and right. The corpus callosum connects the left and the right sides of the brain allowing communication between both hemispheres.

    When neuroscientists first made direct contact with the right hemisphere of the brain, during neurological tests of "split brain" human subjects, it was as if they had found intelligent, albeit speechless, life on Mars. At a time when brain imaging techniques were crude or nonexistent, the only way to observe and communicate with the brain's right hemisphere unimpeded by the left hemisphere was by testing split brain subjects (1). The right hemisphere, previously supposed mute, illiterate, mentally

    looks at each hemisphere of the brain and how it functions. Through split-brain research, developed by Michael Gazzaniga and Roger Sperry, numerous fascinating discoveries have been made.

Research has found that the left hemisphere of the brain controls the right side of the

    Understanding brain functioning has been a complex phenomena in the field of Biopsychology yielding mountains of research, speculation and differing opinions amongst researchers. Obvious is that, which our brains are comprised up from two hemispheres, the right and the left (in Gazzaniga., 2002).

Although the structures of his eye were working his brain did not know how to interpret the signals it was receiving. Our perceptual experiences are based on experience and built up over time.

Subsequently visual information of lateralized foveal stimuli projects to the cerebral hemisphere within the brain. In the brain, the left visual hemifield projects to the right hemisphere and the right visual hemifield projects to the left hemisphere (Lavidor, Ellis, Shillcock & Bland, 2001).

    "schizophrenia." It originated from the Greek words, schizo, which translates to "split" and phrenia, meaning "mind." When Bleuler conveyed the meaning of this term, it was not to label a person as a "split personality," but rather as a split between what is believed, what is perceived, and what is objectively real (1). Throughout history, the disorder has been confused and misunderstood by the general public. The idea of "split" has led people to equate schizophrenia with multiple personality disorder
