TED | Talks | Jill Bolte Taylor: My Stroke of Insight...

I've been meaning to blog about this TED Talk video ever since I first watched it (thanks to Rob for sharing it). The description on the website: 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.

A remarkably enlightening talk on subjects long seen as taboo... our existence, life & interactions. I highly recommend you take the time to watch the video in it's entirety. Warning: an actual human brain is used in the video... don't say I didn't warn you. Check out the video on the TED website at - learn more about TED here. Cheers!
