Hemispheric specialization and interaction
"Eran Zaidel"

Eran Zaidel got his PhD from Caltech in 1973, where he worked with Roger Sperry, studying comissurotomy (split-brain) patients. During this period, he developed an apparatus that allowed prolonged stimulus presentation restricted to only one hemisphere at a time. This technique, known as Z-lens, allowed him to discover the previously unknown linguistic capabilities of the isolated right hemisphere. Since then he has made other important contributions to the study of hemispheric specialization and interhemispheric interaction in the intact brain. He has been at UCLA since 1979, where he is currently a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience.
