Stacey Gayle had problem, every time she listened to rap especially Sean Paul’s “Temperature” she would start foaming at the mouth and flopping around on the floor like a fish out of water. Apparently, she’d never heard the joke “doctor it hurts when I do this.”

Undeterred she sought help at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center where examinations revealed she suffered from a rare condition known as musicogenic epilepsy. Dr. Ashesh Mehta explained, “The pattern that music creates may set up a pattern of activity in the brain that may cause seizure.” After implanting over 100 electrodes into the right side of her brain, the doctors pinpointed and removed the the affected parts. Now the only shaking Stacey does is on the dance floor.
