I found this series on "TED Talks" this evening. I was looking for something interesting, not related to politics or our healthcare system. Our government is now back in business and the Affordable Care Act remains law. Finally can rest.
After watching this episode of "TED Talks", I realized that she is right, we need to spend much more time engaged using our right hemispheres.
Please watch to learn why and also learn some fascinating things about the experience of a stroke.
Peace and Love,
Why you should listen to her:One morning, a blood vessel in Jill Bolte Taylor's brain exploded. As a brain scientist, she realized she had a ringside seat to her own stroke. She watched as her brain functions shut down one by one: motion, speech, memory, self-awareness ...
Amazed to find herself alive, Taylor spent eight years recovering her ability to think, walk and talk. She has become a spokesperson for stroke recovery and for the possibility of coming back from brain injury stronger than before. In her case, although the stroke damaged the left side of her brain, her recovery unleashed a torrent of creative energy from her right. From her home base in Indiana, she now travels the country on behalf of the Harvard Brain Bank as the "Singin' Scientist."
