The Leonard Lopate Show
Oliver Sacks
Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Neurologist Oliver Sacks tells stories of people who manage to navigate the world and communicate, despite losing what many consider indispensable senses and abilities: the power of speech, the ability to recognize faces, the sense of three-dimensional space, the ability to read, and to see. In The Mind’s Eye he considers the fundamental questions: How do we see? How do we think?

Dr. Sacks wrote the story, StereoSue, in the New Yorker which led to Dr. Susan Barry's book, Fixing My Gaze.
