Stunning presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor at the TED conference last month. During her session she describes the lessons she learned from studying her own stroke as it happened.
And in that moment my right arm went totally paralyzed by my side. And I realized, “Oh my gosh! I’m having a stroke! I’m having a stroke!” And the next thing my brain says to me is, “Wow! This is so cool. This is so cool. How many brain scientists have the opportunity to study their own brain from the inside out?”
