The study explored various functions of the brain or hemisphere lateralization and it relevance to learning style and education namely how it relates to other style constructs (visual, Aural, verbal, physical, logical, social and solitary), gender and department stream how these are likely to impact upon learning in educational setting. Generally learning style can be described as a set of factors, behaviors, and attitudes that facilitate learning for an individual in a given situation.  Students learn differently from each other and it has been determined that brain structure influences language structure acquisition. It has also been shown that different hemispheres of the brain contain different perception.  The implications of these finding for the assessment of brain lateralization and their learning style preferences are discussed.
