Balancing right- and left-brain capacity in Psych class activity

How well do you balance your left brain and right brain capacities at the same time?

Psychology classes taught by Susan Kelly participated in a brain lab, where the object was to use both sides of the brain simultaneously, seeing (based on handedness) how you do when balancing a dowel and spelling words. Does left-hand balance help you spell better, or do you do better when balancing the dowel in your right hand?

The lab allows students to consider the unique contributions of the left and right hemispheres, and what happens as information is transferred from one hemisphere to the other.

A few students were able to balance the dowel for 3-4 minutes.
