Through the remarkable case studies from neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks’ latest book, Musicophilia , NOVA investigates the extraordinary impact music can have on the human brain. Viewers meet people like Tony Cicoria, who was struck by lightning and was suddenly inspired to become a pianist, and Matt Giordano, who uses drumming to alleviate his severe Tourette syndrome. NOVA even peers deep into the brain of Dr. Sacks himself for a rare glimpse of what makes minds musical.
