What is split brain syndrome?

Split brain syndrome is a disorder in which the connection between the left and right hemispheres, the corpus collosum, is partially or completely severed. Usually memory and social skills are intact but many tasks become difficult due to the inability of the brain to communicate to both hemispheres
