This is an impressive talk from TED 2008 by neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor, who had suffered a brain stroke. She tells a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to each other and to the surrounding environment. The story is both fascinating and scary because it took doctor Jill about 8 years to completely recover from the brain damage.
This is the second TED video I write about and I have already begun seeing a pattern – both of them are neuroscience related. The way the human brain works is really intriguing for me.
