Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight

Posted in 2014 with tags , , , , on December 22, 2014 by THE BOLDCORSICANFLAME AND CAPITAINE FLAMME INTREPIDE

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.

Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness — shut down one by one. An astonishing story.

One morning in 1996, a blood vessel in Jill Bolte Taylor’s brain exploded. Within moments, her left lobe–the source of ego, analysis, judgement and context–began to fail her. And much to her shock, the Harvard-trained brain scientist felt great. She’d been given a ringside seat to her own stroke, and a host of powerful insights as a result. As Taylor shared with the audience at a recent TED conference, “I believe the more time we spend choosing to run the deep inner peace circuitry of our right hemispheres, the more peace we will project into the world, the more peaceful our planet will be.” Or as she put it another way to The New York Times last week, “Nirvana exists right now.” –
