Problem Solving

Dr. Jill Taylor gave a TED Talk documenting her experience with a stroke. As a brain scientist herself, the stroke became a gift after her 8-year recovery, allowing her to share an incredible experience with the world. Her experience tells us a great deal about how we are built as human beings and how much we need the harmonic differences of both halves of our brains. She shares how she felt the loss of her left side brain in her stroke which resulted in a hemorrhage and excruciating headache. She shares with us what that did to her consciousness and experience of the world around her as she struggled to call for help in the midst.

In the TED Talk, you can learn about the strengths and limitations of each half of the brain by observing what happens when one side leaves.
