 Researchers Suggest Tone Deaf Could Become Musical Geniuses too
A little bit of neural tweaking in adulthood can fix the part of brain that makes understanding music so tough, researchers have claimed.

In the study, researchers gave adult mice "histone-deacetylase" or HDAC inhibitors - used as mood stabilizers and anti-epileptics - and found that the animals began exhibiting perfect-pitch qualities, Mashable reported.

The same drugs were then given to adult men, who then suddenly began identifying pitches that they couldn't before.

Apparently, these HDAC inhibitors allow the brain to learn something, which it would be incapable of after reaching puberty.
