Background and Objective: In the process of learning, interaction and organization of both the right and left hemispheres of the brain are involved. The different functions of each hemisphere and the different capacity and learning strategies show that people do not learn in the same way. Paying attention to the capabilities of both hemispheres of the brain in the learning process can lead to a brain-centered approach that, by coordinating the two hemispheres and paying attention to the capabilities of each hemisphere, can improve learning in students.
Methods: The research is a descriptive-analytical cross-sectional approach that was conducted in 1998. The statistical population is 1000 students of the University of Medical Sciences and by stratified random sampling from all faculties, the number of samples was 334. The instruments used are personal information questionnaire and left hemisphere-right hemisphere questionnaire. Chi-square and Wi-Fi correlation tests were used to analyze the statistical data.
Findings: The results showed that there was no statistically significant relationship between field of study, parental literacy, gender and the dominant hemisphere of the brain, but showed a significant relationship with ethnicity (P <0.043). This variable was one of the important variables in this study that due to the diversity of ethnicities in Golestan province can be considered by other researchers in future studies.
Conclusion: Despite the fact that the variable of superiority of one hemisphere of the brain over another is not effective in our study, examining other aspects of the activity of the hemisphere of the brain by focusing on different ethnicities will still maintain its position.
Keywords: Left Hemisphere, Right Hemisphere, Field of Study
