Summary:
Can the power of music make the brain come alive? Throughout his career Dr. Oliver Sacks, neurologist and acclaimed author of Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, has encountered myriad patients who are struggling to cope with debilitating medical conditions. But while their ailments vary, many have one thing in common: an appreciation for the therapeutic effects of music.

According to Musicophilia, anatomists cannot identify the brain of a visual artist, writer, or mathematician—but they can recognize the brain of a professional musician. Now, NOVA follows four individuals with unique relationships to music—and even peers into Sacks's own brain—to investigate the strange, surprising, and still unexplained power of music over the brain.
