VELASQUEZ BURGOS, Bertha Marlene; REMOLINA DE CLEVES, Nahyr  and  CALLE MARQUEZ, María Graciela. Correlational Analysis of the profile of cerebral dominance of students of the Health Sciences and students of the Colegio Mayor de Cundinamarca University. Nova [online]. 2013, vol.11, n.20, pp.71-82. ISSN 1794-2470.

This article reports the results corresponding to the correlational analysis profiles of cerebral dominance or thinking styles of the students in Health Sciences and Social Sciences of the UCMC, which are part of the joint project Representations, conceptual organization and thinking styles, in the framework of the Convention of Academic Cooperation IISUE-UNAM (Mexico) and the UCMC, Bogotá, Colombia, led by Dr. Miguel Ángel Campos Hernández. The above based on the model of Total Brain of Herrmann and recent studies of La Gardie. The Health Sciences students have a greater preference for the left cortical and limbic quadrants A and B; i.e., they have a preference for the left hemisphere. Social Science students have a higher preference for the left limbic and right limbic quadrants B and C; that is, they have greater preference for the limbic system. The results of this investigation proved the hypothesis about the low use of the creative possibilities and the development of the total brain of the groups subject to study. Similarly, it was found that the profiles of dominance of the students are related to the disciplines that have been selected in their training.

Keywords : creativity; preference or predilection; thinking style or cerebral dominance; total brain.
