From Daily AnatomyIncredible view of the Corpus callosum!
"The cerebral hemispheres are divided right down the middle into a right hemisphere and a left hemisphere. Each hemisphere appears to be specialized for some behaviors.
The hemispheres communicate with each other through a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers called the corpus callosum. (A smaller band of nerve fibers called the anterior commissure also connects parts of the cerebral hemispheres.)
It connects the left and right sides of the brain allowing for communication between both hemispheres. The corpus callosum transfers motor, sensory, and cognitive information between the brain hemispheres.
As a last resort, the corpus callosum can be severed so that communication between the cerebral hemispheres is interrupted in cases of severe intractable epilepsy, but of course you can imagine that this is accompanied by strong neuropathological symptoms!”

Finally done with my exam in mental health, and I think it went ok! I studied really hard for it so I should get a good grade, but I don’t dare to hope so I won’t get disappointed.
