Right and Left Hemispheres

Sent along by a friend: remarkable talk here (18 mins.) by neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor about our competing left- and right-brained selves. Taylor's book, "My Stroke of Insight," detailing her self-examination, from a scientific perspective, of her own stroke at age 37, has been a bestseller and led her on the talk show circuit as well as more formal presentations. Even if you've already read the book, the video is worth a watch.

And a bit more on right- and left-hemispheric brain processing here.
