    • This ensures that the parts of the brain that are used to play are always active during the surgical procedure, so that function can be preserved. Saw an okay video of a dude playing guitar through his whole surgery

    • She did this because she was worried that the brain surgery would affect her flute playing skills and the doctors said if she maintained the motions while going through the surgery her brain would retain any previous knowledge surrounding the ability. Just in case anyone was actually curious

    • Turns out the human brain doesn't have any nerve endings so pain actually can't be felt there. Local anesthesia is applied to the areas of the head that was cut into. The flute playing is to ensure brain activity as it reduces the risk of failure in surgery. At least that's what I read online.

    • Fun fact: brain surgeons sometimes do this because the brain has no nerves that feel pain inside the brain so the patient wont feel anything. If the surgeons perform something risky and the patient messes up their activity, then the surgeons will know they did something wrong and try to fix it.

    • For those doubting or don't understand, during brain surgery its very dangerous to be under anesthesia. You're numbed locally instead. The staff will have you perform cognitive tasks related to your daily life during surgery, to rule our brain damage. Since she's a flutist, this was a cognitive test

    • They do that to make sure that she doesn’t go brain dead during the surgery, or she loses the function to move her mouth, vocals, and minute motor functions. This is done a lot with surgeries like this! It’s really helpful for the doctors and it’s calming for the patient

    • This is actually a big thing. Awake brain surgeries help to preserve skills and for artists and the like, they suggest they play while the tumor is removed. It's like taking out a hard drive. Would be a problem, but any data in the RAM is still there, and then it remakes the neural paths after.
