Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET), Melaka Campus Left and Right Brain Balancing for Childhood Education

The left and right brain dominance theory has been established for decades. Currently, the only way to determine a person whether is left or right brain dominance is by making a questionnaire assessment. There is no scientific data that can directly reflect brain activity to prove the left and right brain theory as well as the effectiveness of the left and right brain development training. Hence, in this research, it is aimed to determine whether the electroencephalography (EEG) signal can be any correlation with the brain dominance level.

Note: The research is open for full-time and part-time candidates. For more information, please refer to Prof. Ir. Dr. Sim Kok Swee’s Google scholar page.
