Tales of Music and the Brain

Dr. Oliver Sacks has been writing about patients with unusual and fascinating case histories since the 1970s. In his new book, Musicophilia, Dr. Sacks explores music and its relationship to the human brain, while introducing new and fascinating characters – from the man who, after being struck by lightning, found a new passion for piano, to Parkinson's patients who receive music therapy.
