Brain consists of left and right cerebral hemispheres. Left hemisphere controls the right side of the body, and right hemisphere controls the left side of the body. Based on observations of students, left-handed students and right-handed students seem to have differences in their mind thinking and learning styles. There are three types of learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. These two factors, brain dominations and learning styles, brought up my interests to ask the question: is there a correlation between brain dominations and learning styles? And if there is, what is it?
