i was so impressed with cbs’s 60 minutes feature on rex, who has savant syndrome, that i decided to use the clip of the show as this week’s music monday. considering kindermusik-type research on early child development links to music and the on-going research for the link between music and alzheimer’s disease, i am very curious about how music is stored in the brain, in the mind. i can not seem to grasp how it is stored different than other information. for instance, how does an alzheimer’s patient remember every word to happy birthday yet forget the name of a spouse? anyway, this excerpt from 60 minutes discusses the link of music to autistic/blind individuals. all i can say is: impressive. if you didn’t see the show, it is worth taking the time to watch it here.
