At the age of 37, Dr. Jill Bolte suffered a massive stroke that took eight years to recover from. This experience has informed her work as a neuroanatomist - a brain anatomy scientist - and led her to start Jill Bolte Taylor Brains, Inc. In this ABC News report, Dr. Bolte discusses her book My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Experience and what the stroke taught her about the workings of the human brain.
