Why This Book Matters:
My Stroke of Insight tells the story of a neuroscientist who prospered, even after facing a life-changing stroke.
The Big Takeaways:
- The aim of Jill Taylor’s study in neuroanatomy was because her brother suffered from schizophrenia.
- If Taylot wanted to help understand the condition of her brother even better.
- Ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes have some difference in appearance and damage.
- The ischemic stroke occurs when the brain cells are deprived of oxygen due to a clot in the arteries. Hemorrhagic strokes happen when the arteries and veins intermix with each other, blasting the blood pressure.
- Experiencing a stroke devastates the senses.
- When Taylor was facing a stroke, her sensitivity to observation was severely disrupted, and she often felt trapped.
- The aftermath of the stroke was devastating but things improved a little at a time.
- After the big stroke, Taylor was able to slowly get back to her life, but she still required a detailed operation to make things better.
- Ultimately, Taylor was able to get back home and was set to live a normal life.
- It was a time-taking and nerve-damaging process, but she fought the battle for her life and won.
