Strength: Sperry's research has paved the way for a large amount of further research into the split-brain phenomenon

  • This has allowed others to continue research into the split-brain phenomenon and helped us to understand the roles of the right and left hemispheres
  • This research has also influenced other research and it has a lot of evidence to support it

Strength: the design of Sperry's experiment was highly specialised and had standardised procedures

  • The design of Sperry's experiment cleverly made sure that only one visual field was able to see the image by flashing it for such a short amount of time
  • By using standardised procedures, it means the results are more accurate and can be relied upon

Strength: Sperry's work promoted a theoretical and philosophical debate
