In this entertaining, beautiful and profound animation, psychiatrist and writer Iain McGilchrist expounds on the uniquely ‘divided’ human brain. He details how this split in our heads was differently understood in the past and how it has altered our behavior, culture and society over time. So much insight you’ll need to use the pause button… a lot!

The audio in the video is taken from a lecture given by Iain McGilchrist as part of the RSA free public events program. The full lecture can be found here.
