Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 11, 2009
Modavox, Inc. (OTCBB:MDVX -News) Internet broadcasting pioneer, producing & syndicating online audio & video, today announced international best-selling author, researcher & lecturer, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, will join Doreen Agostino, host of 'Align Shine Prosper' on VoiceAmerica 7th Wave Channel http://www.7thwavenetwork.com Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at 3 pm Pacific.
As a trained & published neuroanatomist (a scientist who specializes in how the brain works) Dr. Jill's specialty was the post mortem investigation of the human brain as it relates to schizophrenia & the severe mental illnesses. Because her brother had been diagnosed with the brain disorder schizophrenia, Dr. Jill served on the Board of Directors of the National NAMI organization (National Alliance on Mental Illness) between 1994 & 1997. Dr. Jill currently serves as President of the Greater Bloomington Affiliate of NAMI in Bloomington, Indiana.
As irony would have it, on December 10, 1996, Dr. Jill woke up to discover she was experiencing a rare form of stroke, an arterio- venous malformation (AVM). The experience was life-changing. Within hours, Dr. Jill could no longer walk, talk, read or write. As she tried to phone for help, she was aware that the left hemisphere of her brain was shutting down, taking with it her language, organization & other analytical skills. Without the dominant left side of her brain controlling her thoughts, Dr. Jill says, her left mind went silent, leaving only the right side of the brain functioning.
Through the right hemisphere, Dr. Jill says her consciousness shifted away from reality & the trauma her body was enduring, into a place of inner peace & Nirvana. Two & a half weeks later, on December 27, 1996, she underwent major brain surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to remove a golf ball sized blood clot that was placing pressure on the language centers in the left hemisphere of her brain.
Not only did it take Dr. Jill 8 years to successfully rebuild her brain from the inside out after her stroke & major surgery, but she also discovered a better quality of life, through finding balance between both hemispheres of her brain. She's now an artist as well as a scientist, creating anatomically correct stained-glass brains that are sold as fine art.
In her New York Times bestselling book, My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey, Dr. Jill explains in scientific detail exactly what happened during her stroke & how she recovered. It also takes a closer look at how both the left & right hemispheres of the brain work & how people can be more conscious with when & how they capitalize on the skills of each hemisphere.
In May 2008, TIME Magazine named Dr. Jill as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World & she was the premiere guest on Oprah's Soul Series webcast. In addition, her interview with Oprah & Dr. Mehmet Oz on the Oprah Winfrey Show aired on October 21, 2008.
Dr. Jill was a speaker at the TED Conference (Technology, Entertainment, Design). Its mission is to provide TED talks devoted to 'ideas worth spreading.'
Dr. Jill keynotes throughout the country & is committed to educating the public about the beauty & resiliency of the human brain, neurological rehabilitation & the value of brain donation for research. As a public speaker, Dr. Jill's presentations are specifically designed for the education of both the lay public & health professionals. Intended to be "Brain 101" presentations, her audiences are made up of people who seek to better understand the
beautiful human brain.
Dr. Jill's presentation style is stippled with both appropriate humour & beautiful slides of the brain. She is a dynamic speaker who makes the subject of the human brain not only manageable but interesting, exciting & intellectually stimulating.
In addition, Dr. Jill is the consulting neuroanatomist, for the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute (MPRI) housed at the Indiana University Cyclotron.
