About Speaker Jill Bolte Taylor’s Accomplishments…

A brilliant neuroanatomist who suffered a stroke and had to teach herself to function again, Jill Bolte Taylor shows us about the importance of the brain to behavior and its similarity to the structure of organizations.

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist who experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain in 1996. On the afternoon of this rare form of stroke (AVM), she could not walk, talk, read, write or recall any of her life. It took eight years for Dr. Jill to completely recover all of her functions and thinking ability. She is the author of the New York Timesbest-selling memoir My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey and was chosen as one of TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” for 2008. In addition, Dr. Jill has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Taylor discusses with audiences the experience of her stroke and the two very different personalities within the hemispheres of our brains as well as insights on how to optimize the brain’s performance.
