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 of recovery and awareness -- of how our brains define us and connect us to the
world and to one another.
