Renowned Author and Harvard Neuro-anatomist –Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor
A STROKE OF INSIGHT
Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, bestselling author of “My Stroke of Insight” and Harvard-trained neuro-anatomist, who experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain. On the afternoon of this rare form of stroke, Jill could no longer walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. The experience was life-changing. Not only did Dr. Taylor face years of recovery after her stroke and major brain surgery to remove a large blood clot in her brain—she also discovered a better quality of life through increased use of the right hemisphere of her brain as well as the use of sensory stimulation.
Dr. Taylor was chosen as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for 2008. She has been the premiere guest on Oprah and her book has been on the New York Times Bestsellers list. Her book explains in detail exactly what happened during Jill's stroke and how she recovered. It also takes a closer look at how the right hemisphere of the brain works and how Jill says people with normal brains can access it to find their own inner peace and improve their quality of life and the lives of others.
