Ted Talks – Jill Taylor

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.

Jill describes the left and right hemispheres of the brain, what their functions are, how they affect us on a global scale, who we are in relation to having 2 cognitive minds with the power to choose the life we want to live or to be separate. Which do you choose? I have made my decision and will do everything in my scope of influence to spread the word.
