Language and your brain

In most people, the left side of the brain - which controls the right side of the body - deals more with language. For example, if you hear two different words played over headphones at the same time, you will probably repeat back the one heard in your right ear.

If you are played two different words at the same time, you'll probably repeat back the one played to your right ear.
