Summary
Our ears may have evolved for purposes of survival, but they also afford us the gift of music. How is it that a melody can "give wings to the mind," as Plato said, and so profoundly affect the human heart? In this program, finding the answer to that question will take viewers on a journey through the ear, into the brain, and straight into the core of the human psyche. Viewers meet world-class neuroscientists like Daniel Levitin, author of This Is Your Brain on Music, and Steven Pinker, author of The Stuff of Thought. Stories and case studies reveal a woman whose brain cannot "hear" music and a deaf musician who is one of the world's top percussionists. Meanwhile, Dr. Blake Papsin of Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children shows how a revolutionary device called the cochlear implant is restoring hearing to the deaf.
