The Two Hemispheres
It was the ancient Egyptians who first noticed that the left hemisphere controls the right side of the body, while the right hemisphere controls the left side.
Although each hemisphere is identical in terms of structure, each operates in an entirely different way is associated with different activities. This is known as specialization or lateralization.
The left brain is the rational brain. It is responsible for logic, math, analysis, lists, sequence, business, and administration. It is the serious, “parent-like” hemisphere that keeps you in line and makes sure you obey all the rules.
The right brain is the creative part and is responsible for art, color, spatial awareness, imagination, and dimension. It is the “fun” part that likes to daydream and play.
These designations are for someone who is right-handed. For a left-handed person the functions are mostly switched.
The corpus callosum separates the two hemispheres. It is a thick band of nerve fibers that connect the neurons in one hemisphere to the neurons in the other hemisphere. The two hemispheres carry on a continuous dialogue while sharing information.
This sharing is vital to good brain health. If one side knows how to do something that the other side doesn’t, the side that knows will share the information.
As an example, let’s say that you break your dominant hand, the one you write with. You will then be forced to write with your untrained hand. You can do this because the dominant side will tell the other side how to form letters and write with the untrained hand.
The writing may not look great but it will get the job done. This can happen because of the communication between the two hemispheres. It is possible due to neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to create new neuronal connections when it needs to. CogniShield is designed to potentially amp up the brain’s ability to do this with ease.
Neuroscientists have long believed that learning and memory formation are made by the strengthening of connections among brain cells. This is something that CogniShield is designed to do. The four nootropics that it contains have been shown to greatly stimulate neuronal receptors in the central nervous system that are involved in memory and thought.1
