A experiment was taken in early 2000 involving the left side of six men and women’s brains who died within 18-24 hours. What was revealed was that neuron clusters from each side of the brain was similar in size; however, they found that the distance between the clusters on the left side were about 20 percent farther apart, and had more fiber connections among the cells, also it had a more complex cellular structure. Researchers believe this is why that part of the brain (Brodmann’s area 22) is active in processing language.


Assistant professor of psychology at the University of Michigan, Jeffrey Hutsler, said "This study clearly shows that an area associated with speech processing differ from the same area on the other side of the brain.
