Jill Bolte Taylor – What Happens When You Have A Stroke

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist who experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain in 1996. After an 8 year struggle to regain her physical and cognitive functions, she wrote the New York Times bestseller, My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey.

“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.”
