Perfect Pitch Through Valproate?

Having perfect pitch is the ability to identify or sing specific pitches without help, and is limited to a relatively small portion of the population.

A study by Harvard biologist Takao Hensch indicates that giving someone the drug, valproate, can greatly increase the ability to develop perfect pitch.

Further study may prove it to be a very valuable tool for musicians.
