I found a fascinating video while puttering around. It goes into some of the usual information about the basic functions of each hemisphere, but takes it one step further by focusing on a young man with agenesis of the corpus callosum (http://umaine.edu/edhd/about/research/acc/what-is-agenesis-of-the-corpus-callosum-acc/) - he was born with a split brain, rather than having surgery to do this.

I don't think we ever got to get as deeply into this as we wanted to in prior threads, and this adds another dimension to the entire idea of the importance of bilateral connectivity.
