In her best-selling book "My Stroke of Insight," Bolte Taylor chronicles her recovery as well as her personal study of perception as it differs between left-brain processing and right-brain experiencing. Bolte Taylor is the national spokesperson for the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center and is an active member and supporter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. She appeared in conversation with Thomas Goetz on January 28, 2013.

    On the Media Rape Culture and the Steubenville Trial Last Sunday high school football stars Malik Richmond and Trent Mays were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio.
