Survivors Story

  1. How it feels to have a stroke. TED talk. (20:11)

    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.
