Amnesia and music

One of my favorite authors (Oliver Sacks) discusses the profound potential of music as a way for patients with permanent neurological damage to “bridge the gap” to normal functioning and become reanimated with purpose and identity.

If you already haven’t check out his book “Musicophilia“. ┬áIt discusses interesting psychological problems that are associated with music or hearing.

    I’m familiar with the case of Clive Wearing from a made for TV documentary I saw a couple of years ago, the whole case is amazing.
    The book sounds interesting too, I will try to find it (Not an easy task here in Argentina)
