Vanessa Potter

Before becoming a self-experimenting science communicator, Vanessa Potter spent 16 years as an award-winning broadcast producer working in the London ad industry. In October 2012 she was struck down by a rare neurological illness that temporarily rendered her blind and paralysed. Following her recovery, she collaborated with neuroscientists at Cambridge University to design an interactive immersive exhibition, based on her therapeutic use of meditation, and gave a TEDx talk about her experiences. Finding Her Right Mind is her second book, her first, Patient H69 narrates how her curiosity for answers led her to investigate the science behind her lost sight.
