In the first procedure, they set out to find the areas of the brain from where the seizures were occurring by placing more than 100 electrodes on the right side of Gayle's brain. They were then able to pinpoint the problems in her temporal lobe by playing the Sean Paul song to set off a seizure.
In the second operation, doctors removed the problematic portions of the brain.
"The prognosis is excellent for her," said Ettinger. "She's been completely seizure-free since the surgery."
In fact, Gayle recently did something she never thought would be possible.
"I went out and bought his CD," she said, referring to the Sean Paul album that carries the song. "Just looking at it made me nervous."
