The brain is so beyond amazing!
Dagmar Turner, a professional musician, had to undergo brain surgery to remove a large tumor. But to make sure portions of the brain that affect those hand motions were not being damaged, the doctors had her play the violin during the operation! (Watch the amazing video below)
According to News Channel 8:
After beginning the operations under general anesthetics, Turner woke up to play her instrument while surgeons removed the tumor, helping them avoid damaging the areas of her brain that were activated while she played.
