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

remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains
define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
