Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, Revised and Expanded
LondonPicador2011426 pagesEnglish

In Musicophilia Oliver Sacks explores the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition, he shows us a variety of what he calls “musical misalignments.” Among them: a man struck by lightning who suddenly desires to become a pianist at the age of forty-two; an entire group of children with Williams syndrome, who are hypermusical from birth; people with “amusia”, to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans; and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds-for everything but music.
