Also see Bob Ornstein's excellent non-technical book "The Right Mind: Making Sense of the Hemispheres."

Ornstein's early work "The Psychology of Consciousness" was one of the classics of speculative left-right brain lore. In his later book he reaffirmed the legitimate neuroscientific interest in mammalian hemisphere speciallization, while recanting the emphasis on "logical" and "creative" hemispheres that pop psychology had since adopted.

It was probably too late to change the embedded way popular culture now views the hemispheres, but it was a gallant effort. We will probably be stuck with the "creative right hemisphere" myth for a while, obscuring the more complex and interesting real speciallizations of the various systems on each side of the brain.
