When a Brain Scientist Experiences a Stroke

Jill Bolte Taylor is a neuroanatomist specializing in post-mortem investigation of the human brain. She speaks at TED of her experience during a stroke. Coming from a noted scientist (she is the national spokesperson for the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center), it’s rare to hear a message validated mostly by personal experience.
I suppose we don’t have any instruments today to validate her experience.
An interesting watch.
