life and death

Two powerful speeches:

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another. (about 15 minutes)
This video is a reprise of a professor’s last lecture, done for the Oprah show, because she can arrange these things. (About 12 minutes)
