Self-awareness deficits following loss of inner speech: Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor's case study☆

Consciousness and Cognition 18 (2):524-529 (2009)
Abstract
In her 2006 book ‘‘My Stroke of Insight” Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor relates her experience of suffering from a left hemispheric stroke caused by a congenital arteriovenous malformation which led to a loss of inner speech. Her phenomenological account strongly suggests that this impairment produced a global self-awareness deficit as well as more specific dysfunctions related to corporeal awareness, sense of individuality, retrieval of autobiographical memories, and self-conscious emotions. These are examined in details and corroborated by numerous excerpts from Taylor’s book. Ó 2008 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
