      This is a great question! Unfortunately I’ve spent so much time looking at the brains of other people that I haven’t had a chance to see my own in many years. As far as I can tell, it’s pretty normal!

      One thing that you may not know is that some people have what are called “flipped” brains. That means that jobs normally for the left part of the brain are handled by the right part instead, and vice-versa. About 30% of left-handed people have flipped brains and 2% of right-handed people do, too. I am not entirely sure, but I *think* that I have a flipped brain!
