It would be more persuasive if interlocking accounts came from people who hadn't been exposed to the left-brain/right-brain idea.

We know that the brain makes things up when faced with a narrative gap.

Obviously, she had no way of knowing at the time that the clot was in her left hemisphere.  But we have no way of knowing that she really experienced what she thinks she did.

That's not to say I don't believe her.  I'd just rather the experience was recounted by someone whose expectations it didn't fulfill.
