dc.descriptionTo test his hypothesis that the two hemispheres of the brain process images independently, Roger Sperry performed several split brain experiments. Sperry cut the corpus callosum, or the section of the brain that connects the two hemispheres. By cutting the corpus callosum, Sperry prevented the two hemispheres from communicating. Sperry made subjects with split brains look at different images with each eye. Based on the reaction of the subjects, Sperry learned about the different functions of each brain hemisphere.en_US
