Stroke of Insight

// June 5th, 2008 // Science

A great lecture by a brain researcher who herself suffered a stroke. And it’s a good chance to see a real human brain on a platter!

There are lots of other great talks on the TED website as well.

Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness –- shut down one by one. An astonishing story.
