RIGHT AND LEFT HEMISPHERE SPECIALIZATIONS
Left hemisphere.In most people, the general inter-pretive areas and the speech centers exist in the left hemisphere. Therefore, this hemisphere is responsi-ble for skills related to language, such as reading, writing, and speaking. Analytical tasks are also per-formed here. Hence, the left hemisphere is known as the categorical hemisphere.
Right hemisphere.This hemisphere helps analyzesensory information, such as facial recognition, emo-tion interpretation, music, art, and smell differentiation and is known as the representational hemisphere.
The distribution of the described functions varies individually; however, in the majority of both right-and left-handed individuals, the left hemisphere is the categorical hemisphere.
