Q. When the neurobiology professor encountered a student who had plagiarized her entire paper from one of his class lectures, what punishment did he mete out? An F? Expulsion from the class?

A. A lesser teacher might have but not this one, says Oliver Sacks in "Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain." When the prof called the student into his office something didn't add up: She didn't seem the type to cheat or lie so he played a hunch, asking her if she happened to have a photographic memory. "Why, yes, sort of like that," she replied. "I can remember anything if I put it to music." She then sang back to him whole sections of his lecture. And quite prettily, he added. "I was flabbergasted."

This got Sacks thinking about the countless cultural songs and rhymes to help kids learn

Overcoming Stammering

I recently watched the film “The King’s Speech” starring Colin Firth. It’s a great film, describing how King George VI overcame his stammer thanks to the help of an Australian speech therapist called Lionel Logue. The film had a particular resonance for me, because over the years, I have helped a number of patients – most usually children – who have suffered from stammering.

Stuttering or stammering in children is frequently a sign of stress, and is more common than you might think. In my experience, children may start to

stammer after a real fright or a deep emotional trauma. Identifying the root cause of the stammer is a vital element in helping to address, treat and overcome the

Waterford Minister of State John Halligan T.D. has confirmed that construction is due to commence in September on a new 100-bed Community Nursing Home on the grounds of St. Patrick’s Hospital.

The long-awaited unit, which will comprise of two households of 30 beds and two of 20 beds, in addition to a patient roof terrace, courtyard and extended gardens, will take approximately 20 months to construct, Minister Halligan said:

“After so many years waiting, significant progress has finally been made on the development of this badly needed unit, which will be fully funded under the HSE’s 2016-21 Capital Plan. Tenders for construction have been received, evaluated and a preferred bidder selected. The contract award has been approved and a contractor is to be appointed within the next few weeks.

A report from the CSO confirms the shocking impact of cuts in state funding for dental care and the dire need for an emergency plan to address our oral health crisis, says Irish Dental Association (IDA) chief executive, Mr Fintan Hourihan.

In recent weeks the Irish Dental Association has written to the Taoiseach and other Government Ministers urging an urgent cross departmental approach to dealing with the real oral health crisis we face, evidence for which is now becoming apparent with greater regularity.

This CSO report shows that the number of dental treatments provided to medical card patients fell by 16% between 2013 and 2016 even though the number of eligible patients increased by 17% between 2009 and the start of 2016*. Worryingly, the report shows also that curative treatments (such as extractions, fillings and dentures) significantly outnumber preventative treatments.

This worrying trend

    A class taoiseachEven though an approval rating of 49% by the public doesn't sound like an extraordinarily high figure for politicians today it really is and it is a really good figure for any sitting Taoiseach to have. Leo Varadkar is popular for many reasons but perhaps one of the main ones is that he really hasn't been tested in any significant way since being elected to the top position in the country. He was elected just as the house was wrapping up for their elongated summer holidays and it is only …
