What is Cerebral Hemisphere?

People believed that human beings are using only 10% of the capacity of their brains for most of the functions. However, the researches have proven this theory otherwise and there is a lot of potential in your brain which is yet not known or tapped at all.

If you have been wondering how to gain superiority in the brain, then you need to understand a lot of things about its functioning and complex structure. However, an important part of the brain is the ‘cerebral hemisphere’. You can begin your quest with the understanding of “what is cerebral hemisphere?”

The cerebral hemisphere relates to the cerebrum- which accounts for the biggest portion of the brain. It has two parts- left and right. These two parts are called hemispheres. The left hemisphere controls the right side functions of the body while the right hemisphere controls the left side functions of our body. These hemispheres play an important role in supporting cognitive and behavioral functions in the body and storing memories.

How do these parts of the cerebrum function?

The two parts of the cerebrum- named as right and left hemisphere- have a significant role in the overall functionality of the brain. We can discuss a little more about this topic here:

  • Right hemisphere:

This cerebral hemisphere is more related to acquiring the independence of vision, recognition of the objects around us and sensing various kinds of touches.

  • Left hemisphere:

This portion of the brain is more related to logical and analytical reasoning, learning of languages and finding relevance with comprehension.

This knowledge is very surface-level information that helps people in acknowledging themselves as a left-brained or right-brained person. However, you cannot decide it easily on the basis of a few observations because both the parts of the cerebral hemisphere play an important role in making the brain and thereby the body function smoothly.

4 regions in the cerebral hemisphere:

  1. Frontal lobe:

This region mainly controls the following functions: problem-solving ability, personality, emotional traits, planning, speech, speaking, body movements, concentration, intelligence, and body movements.

  1. Occipital lobe:

This region of the brain helps in making you identify the color, lights, and movements. They also help you in interpreting the vision distinctively.

  1. Parietal lobe:

This region in the brain is mostly accounted for interpretation of language, visual and spatial perceptions, the realization of senses of touch, pain, temperature, etc. and inferring the signals that we receive from motor, memory, sensory and hearing.

  1. Temporal lobe:

This region of the cerebral hemisphere plays an important role in enhancing the understanding of different languages, memory, hearing and organizing things.

So, with this discussion above now, you can relate that how the brain has various components defined to perform various functions. Although there is very little that we can do to control them but certain acts of careful monitoring and mindfulness can be inculcated to ensure that our neuron system conveys maximum information about everything that we see in our life.

For example when you are walking on the road- there must be numerous vehicles crossing you alongside the shops and kiosks across the road. It depends on you, how many alerts you are while walking, how many things you have observed and noticed for future reference, how much attention you are paying to the sideways etc. The right knowledge can be used in the future for any reference, for example, locating any shop in the same area again. Thus be mindful and alert to maximize the use of brain functionalities.
