Notably, patients with severe, unilateral carotid stenosis showed cognitive impairments for functions linked with the brain hemisphere that received its blood supply from an occluded carotid, while the same people with an unimpeded contralateral carotid showed no impairment on cognitive tests that tested their contralateral brain function, said Dr.
(12) The amygdala actually consists of two sets of nuclei (clusters of cell bodies)--one set in each brain hemisphere. The amygdala nuclei lie embedded deep within the left and right temporal lobes (located near ears) of each hemisphere.
Although the underlying reason for improved memory following side-to-side eye movements is unknown, some experts believe the horizontal movement strengthens memory by engaging both the right and left brain hemispheres in memory tasks.
