Wow. This talk by Jill Bolte Taylor: “My stroke of insight” is simply touching, moving and worth every second of your time. In this hectic times, it is good to listen to people like Jill Bolte Taylor. All my respect.
Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
