Better get that checked out.

Picture slightly unrelated

What can happen if the two lobes of your brain are separated?Since each eye is controlled by the opposite hemisphere, if you show one eye a card telling the person to do something, the person will do it with no memory of having read the card. If you ask why he did it (since the other lobe controls the mouth) he’ll invent more and more fabulous explanations for why he did so, even when he’s shown the card with both eyes.

Severing the part that joins the two, can also lead to something you might remember from Dr. Strangelove.

What am I talking about?
