I’m looking forward to seeing the TED Talk given this year by Jill Bolte Taylor. Dr. Taylor is a neuroanatomist who gave a blow-by-blow account of a stroke she suffered in 1996. Because she understands the brain and its functionality, she was able to offer an insightful view of the entire event. Through sheer force-of-will she was able to survive the stroke by calling a colleague. It took 8 years for her to recover.
