ABC RN All In The Mind – The mysterious corpus callosum

On Sunday 8th we featured on ABC Radio National’s program All In The Mind.  Listen to the full episode on the RN website below.

The corpus callosum links one side of our brain to the other. It’s not essential for survival, but in some people it’s missing or malformed, and this can cause quite mild to extreme disabilities. Some people may not even know of the problem until they have an MRI. The good news is that research is now revealing that the corpus callosum holds intriguing secrets about brain plasticity.
