from one hemisphere to the other. The authors discuss the evolutional significance of bicamerality. Civilization and meaning can become possible only after a certain degree of development of the brain's bicameral structure. According to Lashley, "a complex organization held together by interaction of processes has no distinguishing feature other than its organization," and the authors state that this is what they have been trying to show in their own words. They believe that analyzability is definitely related to the plasticity of the brain; the analyst, they suggest, functions effectively by linking the two hemispheres. Perhaps the authors' most useful contribution is the attempt to correlate neurological and psychoanalytic data, which may enable us to further understand personality structure.
