“This is the incredible journey of 37 year old Jill Taylor, a Harvard-trained brain scientist after suffering a stroke that affected all of her left brain. She tells of all the information she KNEW because of her training but could not communicate after the stroke. It was an 8 year journey for a complete healing, getting her left brain to communicate with her right brain again. Now she is back lecturing about the amazing capacity of the left brain & right brain for healing, what works & does not work. Tips for visiting stroke patients: do not yell, they are not deaf. Do not finish their sentence, they need to exercise their brain to search for the word. She talks of the depression, exhaustion, frustration as she learned to speak, talk & function again.
