The Divided Brain introduces viewers to a revolutionary and subversive way of looking at how our brain hemispheres function, based on the ideas of Dr. Iain McGilchrist, an eminent neuroscientist and clinical psychiatrist, and author of The Master and the Emissary. Over the series, we’ll explore his compelling evidence that for centuries, the qualities of the left hemisphere have been gaining ascendency over the right – creating an imbalance in our brain, changing the way we think about ourselves, and the world. For McGilchrist, we’ve increasingly allowed the left hemisphere to profoundly alter modern human behaviour and society without the balance of the right hemisphere, with its appreciation for beauty and art, its intuition and its holistic view. The Divided Brain is a story of the battle inside our brain and a warning to society at large about the dangers of how we live in the modern world.
