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.
