This chapter shows that for both the lateral (hemispheric) and front/back (action/perception) dimensions of neural architecture, examining the core-shell organization of corticolimbic networks provides new insight into the adaptive base of the mind. There is the opportunity for theoretical integration here, seeing how hemispheric specialization has elaborated on different aspects of the core-shell organization of each hemisphere. The right hemisphere can be specialized for the holistic cognitive structure and the emotional responsiveness of the corebrain networks. The left hemisphere seems to articulate the more differentiated organization of the sensorimotor shell. The core-shell dialectics are then organized at a higher level, in which intrahemispheric processing elaborates one pole of the dialectic and the productive arbitration must be between the left and the right sides.
