Default Right brain/left brain

So have you ever had one of those things you thought was delusional but turned out the be true? For pretty much since Iíve had hallucinations I thought they were coming from the right brain 🧠 guess what they do!

Here is a paper on it....

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/art...pdf/sbp081.pdf

Importantly the right side of the brain is shown on the left in mris like youíre looking at the patient.

My brain kept telling me I needed to integrate right and left brain thought to stop the hallucinations.

Interestingly there is a gene called disc1 that is famously associated with sz but is also required for formation of the corpus callosum which interconnects the hemispheres of the brain.

Iím just wondering if anyone else felt their hallucinations began on the right whether internal or external. For me I had to do activities that use both sides of the brain to stop it....example art, when I drew a straight line it was left brain, when I drew a curve it was right, forming an object required integrating both sides of the brain. Same with singing...I needed right brain for that where as typical spoken language came from the left. Iím wondering if I became aware of unconscious processes during my time of psychosis.

It sounds well crazy, haha but what if itís true. Any thoughts?

Split brains, autism and schizophrenia

Here is the article that talks about disc1 and the corpus callosum.

Also interesting is th fact that peopleís hallucinations are really variable.....some are complex thought where others are just a word or visual or music.....in split brain patients there is a huge variation in the extent that right brain gets language....what is having language skills in your right brain predisposes you to psychosis. What if having an exceptional right brain is a marker but we never know because right brain doesnít speak?

Another interesting thing is people with right hemisphere damage have trouble understanding metaphors which happens to some people with sz.

Iím convinced the left brain has the delusions though in order to understand whatís going on with the right....there always has to be an answer for the left.

And this is an interesting article on how right brain can heal left brain speech through singing or rhythmic speech....I think itís actually the interplay of the two though.

This is very interesting SP

I have always wondered about my brain

I've dealt with mental illness since 12, and psychosis started around age 18.

At some point after I started getting psychosis I decided it would be a good idea to

Possible trigger:
to cope with my crazy mood swings and the other problems. I had the most terrifying experience of my life. Now I've had these issues before I had ever touched even weed or doing something stupid like I did but I have always wondered if I had done some kind of damage to my brain that night. Ever since the. I get these strange feelings. Like I'm on the verge of having a seizure (I know what they feel like, have had one, completely unrelated) and kind of like disassociated.

I know that's kinda off topic it's just your brain thing made me think about it.

I have never experienced much visual stuff. I saw all kinds of colors warping around and the walls moving in on me before.

Mainly my issue was paranoia and delusions. And auditory things so I can't really tell where that would be coming from

Yeah Iím not sure why I could tell....as far as I can tell we arenít supposed to have a mental map of our brain 🧠 mine were mostly internal auditory but the external one always came from somewhere too, sometimes a vent or a particular ear.
