Dr. Nader Pouratian is on 'Starting Point' talking with John Berman and Christine Romans about the brain surgery he performed on a patient at UCLA medical center where the patient was awake throughout the surgery. The patient facilitated doctors in the completion of his surgery, by playing the guitar it helped guide surgeons throughout the surgery to repair the patient's tremor. According to Dr. Pouratian there are 'no pain receptors' inside the brain, so the patient felt no pain even though he was awake during the surgery.
