Christian,

First up, let me say that was a very nice article. surely, though, the point is we have one brain. The connectivity between neural pathways is so complex, that I believe we get into "muddy" territory when trying to over-simplify ideas (such as right brain/left brain concepts).

That said, the various parts of the brain have been relatively well mapped out; so we can say with a degree of certainty about particular brain activity being dominant in specific zones.

Thanks for writing,
David

PS - interesting to hear Jonathan Sacks bring religion into a scientific debate. I'm always a little amused when religious figures use science to give credence to their faith, but that's another debate altogether!
