A Stroke Of Insight Future  Science/Technology

It's Friday afternoon, you've got a little time. Do yourself a favor and watch this fascinating, deeply moving, and finally ecstatic talk by neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor at this year's TED Conference. In 1996, she suffered a massive stroke that pretty much shut down the left hemisphere of her brain, bit by bit, over a four hour period. She tells what she learned, and it's much bigger and more beautiful than you think.

Watch it.

Jill bolte Taylor has great knowledge about human brain.But i am still amazed that after having such severe brain stroke how wonderfully she has recovered.
