Theories about learning styles abound, and can become confusing. However, the newest discoveries in brain research have made things simpler by looking at thinking and learning from the perspective of the different functions of the two hemispheres of the brain.
Neuroscientists have described the left hemisphere of the brain as auditory-sequential. Left-brain functions include language, reading, writing, science, mathematics, logic, analysis, and time-orientation. Left-brain thinkers and learners appear rational, objective and reality-based.
