If the 2-way interaction between the left and right hemispheres of our brain is hindered or blocked, we have to invent other, often inappropriate, neurological pathways. This often inhibits our ability to think clearly or to perform everyday tasks such as making choices, relating to others and making sense of our world. The more detours messages have to take to get to their destination (because of blockages, compensations and adaptations), the slower brain processing will be.
Some reasons for a loss of brain integration include acute stress (related to a specific event, person or situation), experiencing trauma (as well as remembering or re-living past trauma) and shutdown of the corpus callosum which frequently started as a defence mechanism during childhood but subsequently leads to difficulties handling life. This balance is my fav!!
