About Jill Taylor, Dr.

Author

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is the author of the New York Times best-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.” A Harvard-trained neuroanatomist whoexperienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain in 1996, Dr. Taylor could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life on the afternoon of her stroke. It took eight years for her to successfully rebuild her brain – from the inside out. In response to the swelling and trauma of the stroke, which placed pressure on her dominant left hemisphere, the functions of her right hemisphere blossomed. Her presentation will be based on her bestselling book.
