MY FAVORITE TED TALK

It is one of my favorite TED talks!!
"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 of recovery and awareness — of how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another" (http://blog.ted.com/2008/03/12/jill_bolte_tayl/).

  2. Fascinating. The bit when she shows a real human brain is quite striking. We always talk about left and right hemispheres of the human brain, but to see how distinct and separate they really are is quite profound.
