Abstract:

This program from NOVA presents author and neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks and his exploration of the link between music and the brain. While working with patients who struggle to cope with a number of debilitating medical conditions, including autism and Tourrette syndrome, Dr. Sacks found that the therapeutic effects of music help many. Four remarkable case studies from Dr. Sacks' book, Musicophilia, are examined, including a man who uses drumming to relieve his severe Tourette syndrome symptoms.
