My Stroke of Insight author Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is this week's guest on Writers' Voices with Monica and Caroline. Tune in to KRUU 100.1 FM Friday Jan 9, 1pm, or Monday Jan 12, 8am. Dr. Taylor, a brain scientist, had a stroke and recovered to tell the story of how her consciousness shifted during the experience. One of Time magazine's 100 most influential people of 2008, and featured on Oprah, Dr. Taylor feels that greater peace is possible by choosing to cultivate our right-brained consciousness, and that this is a message worth spreading.
Dr. Taylor first became interested in the functions of the mind when she was a child, growing up with a brother with schizophrenia. She has devoted her career to the study of severe mental illnesses as a Harvard-trained neuroanatomist.
