Lecture: Stroke of Insight: Strengthening the Brain

Brilliant!ScienceAt the age of 37, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor from the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center, had a massive stroke and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, memory, linear thinking, and self-awareness -- shut down one by one. After a long and successful rehabilitation, she has become a spokesperson for the possibility of full recovery from brain injury. In her book My Stroke of Insight, Taylor chronicles her recovery as well as her personal study of perception as it differs between left brain processing and right brain experiencing. Taylor will be in conversation with Thomas Goetz, executive editor of WIRED and author of The Decision Tree: A Manifesto for Personal Health.
