Jill Bolte Taylor: My stroke of insight

Jill Bolte Taylor is a neuroanatomist who observed herself having a stroke, recovered creatively by making stained glass brains, gained insights on emotions and time and wrote a terrific memoir about it all. At TED she shares lessons learned through her altered perceptions (most importantly, being in the moment). This is a great talk that received a standing ovation.
