Neurologist Oliver Sacks talks with Ira about vision, the brain, and how the two can work together — or can work against each other. It’s the topic of his new book, “The Mind’s Eye.” Plus, in the premiere installment of our new series Desktop DiariesTM, we’ll get a video tour of Dr. Sacks’ desk.
Oliver Sacks is the author of Musicophilia (Knopf, 2007) and a professor of neurology at the NYU School of Medicine in New York, New York.
