What is Hall's Effect?

My professor says that depending on the conditions certain charges (either the positive ones or negative ones) get "left behind". An applied magnetic field causes one type of charge to move to the top of the conductor and the other type of charge to stay at the bottom and not move. Can anyone explain this concept to me?
