When a Brain Scientist Suffers a Stroke

This is an incredible video on so many levels. It is 18 minutes of astonishing candor and insight. Harvard trained neuroanatomist, Jill Bolte Taylor was only 37 when a brain hemorrhage triggered a stroke. In the period that follows she spends time "to the right of her left hemisphere", very likely a near death experience. Here she tells us about it and offers logical explanations to what is happening to her.

Not only does this moving presentation bring the symptoms of a stroke (some of which are unique to women) to our attention in vivid detail but it also shows that the potential for recovery is a very real possibility.
