Charles Limb loved music as a child—Mahler, the Beatles, Miles Davis, whatever. And he heard things most of us don't. "I was fascinated by this question of how sound can make you feel something," says the Johns Hopkins otolaryngologist. "If you think about it from a kind of abstract philosophical level, it's unusual that acoustic vibrations in the air can make you feel deep emotion, something that can affect your life."
