The Best Time To Practice Your Instrument Might Be During The Middle Of Brain Surgery

On today's episode, we head to the University of Chicago to speak with one of the nation's leading neurosurgeons, Dr. David Frim, PhD. Dr. Frim discusses the basics of brain surgery and how surgeons will examine the brain to make sure they avoid damaging the areas that effect speech and motion. He also discusses why some patients perform their instruments during surgery, and how music, and its effect on the brain, is currently being studied by doctors.
