Oliver Sacks was a neurologist who brought the brain to popular imagination in latter part of the 20th century. In the article, the author presents Sacks’s work on brain phenomena, ranging from hallucinations and colour blindness, against the backdrop of his life that was as interesting as the brains and people he studied. Also highlighted is Sacks’s remarkable ability to connect with and communicate about his ‘patients’ in a very humane way.
