    In four hours, Harvard-trained brain researcher Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor watches her brain deteriorate.  “We have a problem,” she alerts herself, “Get help!” As the stroke in her left hemisphere shuts down all “brain chatter,” she becomes “a helpless infant in a 37 year old woman’s body.”  And yet she feels euphoric.  Taylor reports on the brain/mind/body experience from her privileged viewpoint of full recovery - part a clear description for the layman of human brain structure/function, part outreach to caregivers to give them better tools to help people recover from neuro-trauma, and part the author’s account of her changed and renewing relationship with herself revealed. 

    Please join us for this newly-formed book group which will focus on various science-related topics including biographies and memoirs.  Books will be available for check-out at the Library.
