This is pretty cool

Posted in Uncategorized by Kathy on March 22, 2008

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a neuroanatomist (brain scientist), suffered a stroke and talks about what it was like to lose half of her brain function. While strokes are terrible things to happen, they do happen, and it’s a bit of a mystery to people like me what happens when a person has a stroke, so the “cool” part is being able to understand what happens. I like having a larger and better view of the things that can happen in this life. Being a brain scientist, she was able to describe what happened in a way that most stroke victims can’t. It’s well worth watching the presentation or reading the transcript.
