Gweek 075: Oliver Sacks’ Hallucinations

Gweek 075 interviews Oliver Sacks about his new book “Hallucinations”. Dr. Sacks is the author of twelve books, including Uncle TungstenThe Mind’s Eye, and The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat. He is a fascinating author who writes about topics of neuroscience and the human mind. Dr. Sacks’ books are fascinating explorations into the way the human mind works, usually through studying abnormal minds and surprising ways in which they give us clues about perception, consciousness, and behavior. Interestingly, Dr. Sacks himself has face blindness, Asperger’s syndrome, is blind in one eye, and is slightly deaf, which might explain in part why matters of the human mind are of great interest to him.
