IU Scientist One Of World's 100 "Most Influential People"

Last updated on Friday, May 2, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bloomington resident and Indiana University scientist has been named by Time magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor was named by the magazine for her work in neuroscience, and her working to explain how the brain works to people with and without disabilities.

One of her champions in the Time article is radio and TV legend Dick Clark, who, like Taylor, is a stroke survivor.

Taylor currently teaches Neuroanatomy at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Bloomington and, 12 years ago, was a brain scientist at Harvard University.
