Why is it that looking to the left means you remember an image, but looking to the right is constructing (lying)? What brain areas are involved in this? Is it correlated to the creative vs. Logical parts of the brain?

    $\begingroup$ Can you cite something that indicates those traits are real? Preferably something that has some data behind it, and not just a blog post $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Oct 7 at 20:58

    $\begingroup$ The way you describe reminds me on NLP, so you'll find the reasoning if you look deeper into NLP. NLP is dividing the visual range into several sections. Note that NLP might not be the only source of this left / right - enter "looking left lying" into Google and you might find more sources. - As you are asking for brain regions, NLP has IMO not a strictly neurological reasoning. Its early roots go back to Gestalt -, Family -, Hypnotherapy and linguistics. $\endgroup$ – peter_the_oak Oct 11 at 20:11

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Psychology.SE. @BryanKrause was referring to the fact that we have a strict policy that all questions should show evidence of prior research. Please help us to help you and edit your question to provide more information on what you have read on this subject, what made you ask this question, and any problems you are having understanding your research. If you found nothing, what did you Google? This helps to provide an answer which will be more helpful. Telling someone to "get real" is not friendly. $\endgroup$ – Chris Rogers Oct 13 at 8:04
  • $\begingroup$ I'm closing this as not founded in science - as several have noted, the assumptions behind this question are not supported by evidence. NLP is pseudoscience and is off-topic on this forum. $\endgroup$ – Arnon Weinberg Oct 13 at 13:25
