Dr Jill Bolte Taylor has dedicated her life to understanding the science of the human brain. As a neuroanatomist at Harvard, she pioneered research into severe mental illness; then, aged 37, she experienced a massive stroke that left her without the ability to walk, talk, or recall any of her life. The story of her eight year journey to recovery became My Stroke of Insight, the first ever viral TED talk. In conversation with Robin Ince, she reveals lessons that all of us can employ to gain more power over our thoughts, our feelings, our relationships, and our lives.
