Question

A patient is shown a flower in her left visual field and points to it with her right hand. She is then shown the flower in her right visual field and points to it with her left hand. This suggests that the woman has experienced damage to which of the following areas of her brain.

  1. hippocampus
  2. cerebellum
  3. corpus callosum
  4. amygdala

The Correct Answer is C.

Research on "split-brain" patients has found that severing the corpus callosum limits the amount of information that can be transferred from one hemisphere to the other.

Answer A: Although the hippocampus is involved with memory, damage to the hippocampus will not necessarily result in the behavior described in this question.

Answer B: The cerebellum governs coordinated movements.

Answer D: The amygdala is part of the limbic system and involved in the regulation of emotions.
