This weekend marked the passing of one of the most inspirational neuroscientists known to mankind, Dr. Oliver Sacks. His wisdom, kindness, and humanizing insights will be missed. Do check out some of his work on the internet and feel free to drop by my office if you want to borrow one of his books. About 22 years ago, I watched this documentary series called ‘a glorious accident’ which played a huge role in making me want to study psychology, and neuroscience in particular. Here is an episode with Dr. Sacks (there’s a bit of Dutch in there you can ignore. Start at 6:55).
I would not be here if it weren’t for him.
