VETENSKAP och ANDLIGHET Dr. Anthony D. Cicoria: The Story of One Man's Profound Near Death Experience Del 1
Thoughtful viewers，welcome to Science and Spirituality for the first in a two-part series examining near death experiences or NDEs， which occur when a person comes close to physical death and has an experience such as a sense of detachment from the body accompanied by the vision of a bright light or tunnel. Subjects may also undergo what’s known as a 『panoramic life review』or flashback of past life events.
Even though the subjects’hearts and brains may completely cease to function during the incident，they can still recall everything that occurred. Today we’ll speak with Dr. Anthony D. Cicoria，who after his own
near death experience discovered a passion for playing the piano and subsequently uncovered a talent not only to play but also to compose beautiful music.
In ２００８ he released a ＣＤ of his musical works entitled 『Notes from An Accidental Pianist & Composer.』Dr. Cicoria is chief of the medical staff and of orthopedics at Chenango Memorial Hospital，Norwich， New York， USA and Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopedics at State University of New York Upstate Medical University in Syracuse， New York， USA.
