Watch a man play the guitar as surgeons operate on his brain

To Brazil, where Anthony Kulkamp Dias is playing the guitar as surgeons operate on his brain. Doctors wanted to monitor Mr Dias’ cognitive functions during the surgery. Playing a guitar was his idea.

The 20-year-old strummed Yesterday by The Beatles and a tune he wrote for his young son.

Kulkamp Dias tells The Telegraph:

“I played six soongs at certain times. My right hand was a bit weaker because that was the side that they were operating on. So I stopped and rested. I was interspersing songs and talking with them… The doctors asked me to repeat one of the country songs, so I even had an encore.”
