Video of a talk by Jill Bolte Taylor: My stroke of insight

Have you ever wondered how your brain works? Or what happens when a person has a stroke? You will learn all about it when you watch and listen to this fascinating presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor: My stroke of insight About this talk Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, self-awareness –- shut down one by one. An astonishing story. About Jill Bolte Taylor Brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor studied her own stroke as it happened -- and has become a powerful voice for brain recovery I found her talk incredibly moving and profound. What an impressive woman! I'm not surprised to learn that in May 2008 she was named to Time Magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. If you want to learn more about Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, she has a website. She also has set up My Stroke of Insight website, an interactive place to read inspiring stories and share techniques on how to create deep inner peace.
