TED Talk: Jill Bolte Taylor

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

One of the most-viewed TED talks is by Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain researcher who watched herself have a major stroke. The miracle is that she lived and recovered (thanks in great part to her mother’s unceasing love and work). She can discuss what it feels like to switch between the right brain and left brain functions.

This woman is smart, well-spoken, and an amazing performer. She will keep you enraptured through her 20 minutes. Highly recommended.
