Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA)
Our everyday movement is reflected by those individuals who design the world in which we live. Ninety percent of the people who shape our everyday lives are right handed. Individuals perceive life differently, especially left and right handed individuals. One reason left and right-handed individuals interpret differently is due to the brains’ two hemispheres processing information separately. Can this difference in interpretation result in varying abilities of performance? Research has proven that those individuals who are right hemisphere dominant process and comprehend shapes better than left hemisphere dominant individuals. Golf is an activity that is exhibits the constant changing of visual shapes. With this knowledge, the derived conclusion would imply that the right hemisphere dominant individuals should interpret the curvilinear shapes presented on a golf course better than the left hemispheric dominant individual. This thesis tests for the differing abilities in performance between the left and right hemispheres on two curvilinear holes.
