Sperry Core Study - Storyboard Brief

Sperry Core Study in Brief.
11 Participants (with at least one woman) who have epilepsy and their corpus callosum severed.
Tests were used for the participants to look in the middle of a screen, separating both images into either the LVF or RVF and were asked to recall them or find the object.
When images appeared in the RVF, participants were able to recall the object and find it.
However, when images appeared in the LVF, the right hemisphere cannot communicate and the participants says he cannot see anything, yet his right-hand finds the object.
The participants comes up with a plausible explanation from the left-hemisphere to explain why he/she picked the object, although that hemisphere is separate from the other which found the object purposefully.
Sperry concluded the right hemisphere is separate from the left hemisphere, and acts as two brains (known as split-brain), from which the right hemisphere cannot speak yet act, and the right hemisphere (more logic) can speak and act although independently.
