Somehing interesting is: Women and Men use each half differently.
Language in women for instance is located in both halves. In men, on the
other hand, language is stored on one side only. This is why women are
more likely to recover language skills after a stroke. Also, noise and
language are stored in different parts of the mind, yet in different
cultures, the definition of noise changes. For westernized people,
regardless of race, birds, animal sounds, wind etc.. are all seen as
"noise" by the brain. In Eastern cultures however, birds, wind etc.. are
seen processed in the "language" area of the brain.
