Abstract

The corpus callosum (CC) is the structure of fibers connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which means the CC is responsible for all interhemisphere communications. Individuals with CC pathology (CCP) are seen to have a variety of cognitive dysfunctions; this literature review focuses on cognitive dysfunctions revolving around perception. Research on individuals with CCP has revealed impairments in sensory input, reasoning, and the ability to switch perceptions. These characteristics of CCP allow researchers to better understand the function of the CC and the roles of each hemisphere of the brain.
