Lesion size and location can vary as can the effect of the lesion. While your left lobe might show the largest lesion, is this lesion active? When did it appear? Did you ever have right side problems? These are all variables which are difficult to answer. There is so much about our brains which remain unknown.

Left side of the brain controls the right side of the body as just one function. As far as auditory nerves goes- left side controls left hearing.....

As Nikki pointed out, your left frontal lobe is your speech center. You can also have many other functions which are not motor related. The left hemisphere is: logical, sequential, rational, analytical, objective, and looks at parts. The right hemisphere is: random, intuitive, holistic, synthesizing, subjective, and looks at wholes. We can even be right or left brain dominant and we can also train both sides of our brains separately.

If you view your lesions, you cannot say lesion "A" is "here'; therefore I have problem "B". were it so simple, medical science would be ahead of where it is today. :angel:

Ok, this is why I was confused. Because I was thinking that if the left frontal lobe was indeed ON the left side of my body that it would actually control the right side of my body. Therefore, it did not make logical sense that my left sided weakness would be a direct result of a lesion on my left frontal lobe.

Ha ha, can I confuse everyone any further? I think it will suffice to say that I tend to use my "thinking side" of my brain a bit more than I need.
