Questions Uddin, L. Q. (2011). Brain connectivity and the self: The case of cerebral disconnection. Consciousness and Cognition, 20, 94-98. Respond to the following questions 1. Studies of commissurotomy (split-brain) patients have led to certain findings concerning the nature of consciousness in each of the brain hemispheres. Describe the research findings that concern the recognition of one’s own face by each hemisphere. What are the most consistent conclusions of the studies? 2. What categories of the phenomenon of the “alien hand syndrome” are associated with which types of brain damage? Lisette et al. (2011). How does the corpus callosum mediate interhemispheric transfer? A review. Behavioural Brain Research, 223, 211-221. Respond to 3 of the following questions 1. What are the three main commissures of the brain and which parts of the brain do they connect? 2. What are the three main subdivisions of the corpus callosum? Which areas in the two hemispheres does each subdivision connect? 3. Two models have been proposed concerning the role of the corpus callosum for the communication of the two hemispheres of the brain: the inhibitory model and the excitatory model. Briefly describe the role of the corpus callosum in each model. 4. When comparing the two models, which functions can be attributed to the inhibitory function of the corpus callosum and which to the excitatory function? 5. Chose a disorder from the ones mentioned in the article and describe the research evidence concerning the contribution of the corpus callosum in the disorder.
