brain.jpgQuote of the day: Speaking at AMD's Global Vision Conference, V.S. Ramachandran, director of the Center for Brain and Cognition and a professor with the psychology department and neurosciences program at the University of California, San Diego, was talking about the assymetry of the brain--the left hemisphere is more conformist and the right more of a devil's advocate. His distilled version of what makes us tick: "All human nature rises from the push-pull antagonism of the two brain hemispheres." Combine that with the strands of DNA competing for survival and you have the dynamic underlying all of human history.
