I came into this thread thinking "yeah, SCIENCE!" but then i realised you were on about BIOLOGY :p. Okay well the thing about the right and left hemispheres being responsible for creative/abstract and logical thinking respectively is not nesicerally entirely true but it is said that the left hemisphere does tend to be more cognative and works through things in a logical manner whereas the right hemisphere tends to look at the whole picture more and think through things differently. So there.

Look at some studies regarding facial recognition and hemisphere bias. Will answer most of the question.

That was the joke, which you seem to have failed to grasp.

Grasping all the way.....

Color, dimension, and imagination for the right brain.

Check on RUSH´s, Hemispheres front cover album. It will answer your question, the dancer? or the man with the hat? standing on the brain...

So, doing left-hand exercises should make one more creative? cool beans.

I do not believe many studies, artistic expressions, or physicals acts actually are isolated in one hemisphere over another. When reading and playing music, you are counting, reading ahead and calculating what you are going to do.

This seems to me that both the right and left hemispheres are being employed. When drawing or painting you have to make a few calculations and switch between the right and left hemispheres.

Programming is usually associated with the math and sciences, yet it is a very creative expression.

When doing math calculations, I sometimes have to be very creative in finding solutions. There were times when I would actually dream about Calculus problems that were bothering me during waking hours. The right hemisphere is supposed to be responsible for dreaming and the left is supposed to be responsible for math and science.

In ENGLISH we call that a dangling sentence :p

Do you know that more ideas are generated whilst on the toilet or in the bath than at work so i guess you have a point there!!

Yes, but not necessarily because you are exercising different parts of the brain. Experiencing different things can increase creativity because you widen you reference points. That's why we hear time and time again on here 'have you tried playing a different genre'. Tends to give you different perspectives and reference points.

When I practice I tend to change the order in which I do things which, for me, helps me not to get set in my ways.
