I suggest Rent the movie, it is available at Blockbuster. Remember the movie is a fictionalized portral of the fictionalized book.
For my psychology class we watched the film "Awakenings". If any one has seen the film, I would appreciate some help with this question I have. I remember in the film that before medication was used on the patients, music helped them move on their own, even if it was slight. What I can't remember is what type of music worked for certain patients. If you have any clue please help. Thanks.
Or try to ask Oliver Sacks himself:
Dr. Oliver Sacks
2 Horatio Street, 3G
New York, NY 10014
Probably different types of music would be applied to patients with different types of problems. However, since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "music therapy" to get these possible sources:
Although it doesn't relate directly to the film, it might be helpful.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
