From the WGBH Forum Network: "Music has a fascinating power to haunt us and heal us. In his latest book, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, essayist-physician Oliver Sacks looks at music and its mysterious relationship to the brain. Sacks argues that music is essential to being human in ways that have only begun to be understood. Neurologist Oliver Sacks explores "your brain on music", asking why humans make music and what music-making does for the individual and society."
