These are some of the views about a video by ‘The Singin’ Scientist’. I strongly recommend you checkout the video at TED

  •  “some fascinating insights into the experience of having a stroke” – Deric Bownd
  • “You can almost hear the sound of a thousand cognitive scientists gritting their teeth” – Vaughan
  • “it’s eerily fascinating to hear this brain scientist describing what it was like” – The Thinking Meat
  • “The language …. to relate her experience is very much like … describing a mystical or religious experience” – Learning Computation

It is one of the most talked about videos in TED 2008. A neuroanatomist, Jill Bolte Taylor, had a stroke in 1996 and lived on to tell her experiences in a book(amazon, lulu), a radio interview and a video.

Isn’t it amazing to see so many views?
