Jill Bolte Taylor – My Stroke of Insight

Here’s yet another example of just how awesome it is to have the TED Talks available for public viewing:

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.

I heartily recommend a viewing (or at least a reading) of Jill Bolte Taylor’s phenomenal from earlier this year.
