    Jimmy Smith, aka B Rabbit (rap phenom Eminem), is a poor Detroit kid struggling to make a name for himself as a rapper. After choking on stage at a local rap-off, he's convinced he's missed his shot. But he has a chance to redeem himself when he goes up against his doubters at an electrifying freestyle rap battle. Charles Limb, MD, an auditory surgeon at Johns Hopkins and a lifelong musician, studies how the brain works during musical improv. He and his research team have put Baltimore rappers into functional MRI machines to see what happens in their brains as they rhyme off-the-cuff. Join us as he shares what his studies reveal about artistic creativity and the brain.
