Oliver Sacks, Neurologist Who Wrote About the Brain’s Quirks, Dies at 82

I had the pleasure of meeting Oliver Sack in 2000.  In addition, I am fortunate to share a few friends with him.  He has done so much for our community of the neurologically gifted.  He will be missed, but I will be eternally grateful for his contributions and commitment to understanding and improving our lives.

Dr. Sacks explored some of the brain’s strangest pathways in best-selling case histories like “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat,” achieving a level of renown rare among scientists.
