Oliver Sacks: What hallucination reveals about our minds

March 31, 2011

A lovely exposition by Oliver Sacks, which is enthralling both for it’s subject matter and the man who is presenting it:

Neurologist and author Oliver Sacks brings our attention to Charles Bonnet syndrome — when visually impaired people experience lucid hallucinations. He describes the experiences of his patients in heartwarming detail and walks us through the biology of this under-reported phenomenon.
