Nonverbal Communication is the opposite of or as separate from verbal communication, it’s more accurate to view them as operating side by side—as part of the same system. They still have important differences, including how the brain processes them. For instance, nonverbal communication is typically governed by the right side of the brain and verbal, the left. This hemispheric distinction has been clearly evidenced, as people who suffer trauma to the right side of their brain lose the ability to recognize facial expressions but can still process verbal communication. people whose left hemisphere of the brain is damaged lose the ability to speak, read, and understand language. But with a damage to the left hemisphere of the brain who loses the ability to speak can often still sing since the creation, but not the reading, of music is governed by the right brain.
