A stroke of insight

The morning that neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor suffered a stroke, she traced her progress through the event using her intimate knowledge of the workings of the brain: “My left hemisphere had been trained to perceive myself as solid, separate from others. Now, released from that restrictive circuitry, my right hemisphere relished in its attachment to the eternal flow. I was no longer isolated and alone. My soul was as big as the universe and frolicked with glee in a boundless sea.”

Watch this elite scientist share her inspired story on Ted.com.
