    Well I at least thought stories about split-brain patients was interesting....

    These concepts explain ancient theories about the "heart" and the "mind" (though both are the mind)

    Yes. They are interesting. So too is good fiction often is interesting.

    No. I'm not poo pooing "Split brain" approaches to such as male/female or creative/logical or any other location parse. If I were 'I'd be lifting my nose to include what I see as the very important tegmentum studies of rise of consciousness pursued by Crick and others. Place has always been an interesting, if not always productive, direction of brain study.

    To clarify, The above are much more qualitative areas of research rather than are they quantitative areas of study which is why we're even discussing them here in the association vs determination arena.

    Actually I'm more interested in overlap between learning and affiliation and affect processing within sensory and autonomic pathways than I am in this side/that side or least necessary structures for existence of consciousness. Ah, but in such reductive study we can come across monkey claw detectors in house cats and Barlow face detectors there as well distractions.
