DR JILL BOLTE TAYLOR: The neuroscientist shows Sarah how to live blissfully in the right brain Wild with Sarah Wilson

    • Society & Culture

I discovered Jill's story in her viral TED Talk from 2008 (it became the most watched TED talk ever!) in which the brain scientist describes watching the left side of her brain deteriorate over the course of four hours on the morning of her stroke and how she used her right brain to stay present and get help.
I was transfixed. Ever since I've wondered, what ever happened to Jill Bolte Taylor? Did she go back to normal? Is she still living in her right brain and able to experience the “oneness” that spiritualists and quantum physicists can only point to? If so, is she lonely?
In this chat we get into her how stroke stripped her of her relationships and emotions, understanding the power of each hemisphere of the brain and techniques we can all use to go right and be legitimately and neuroscientifically wilder!
Jill's latest book is Whole Brain Living: The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life.
Her first book was My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey.
