What’s the difference between a ballet dancer, a Buddhist monk, and a mathematician? Australian neuro-scientist, Jack Pettigrew believes it’s all to do with how their brains switch from one side to the other. Jonica Newby’s fascinating report follows Jack’s personal and scientific journey deep into the functioning of the brain. It’s lead him to question the very nature of how our brains work. Along the way viewers will be able to work out how quickly their brains switch from left to right hemisphere. According to Pettigrew, this brain switching speed could determine what we’ll be good at in life.
