Bouncing Back: Linda Graham; ….Corpus Callosum….

  
*
*
*
The right and left hemispheres are linked by a small band of integrative fibers called the corpus callosum.
*
*
This brain structure tends to be thicker in women than in men, perhaps explaining why women sometimes process their emotions more easily than men do.
*
*
In addition to integrating the right hemisphere’s felt sense of our emotions with the left hemisphere’s rational assessment of them,
*
*
the prefrontal cortex integrates the various facets or “parts” that make up the personal self,
*
*
creating a coherent narrative of our self and a continuity of self across time.
*
*
It integrates the past and the present with anticipations for the future —
*
*
what we can do about the next unknown.
*
*
It also integrates the focused states of “doing” with the defocused states of “being.”

  1. Our brain is mysterious until we are responsible for getting adventure inside it.
