Daily TEDTalk Inspiration: “Jill Bolte Taylor: My stroke of insight”

This is an incredibly emotional and insightful talk from Jill Bolte Taylor, a woman dedicated to researching the human brain as it relates to schizophrenia and severe mental illnesses.

Jill starts by talking about the two hemispheres of the human brain and how each process information differently (presenting a real human brain as an example). She than continues to share her story of one day realising she was having a stroke and her profound experience of the left hemisphere of her brain being impaired and how it led her to feel the sensation that Buddhists call “oneness with the universe”.

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. Brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor studied her own stroke as it happened — and has become a powerful voice for brain recovery.”
