Hallucinations with Oliver Sacks, November 9, 8 P.M. EST [Live]
The renown neurologist talks about how the brain creates hallucinations — watch this hour-long discussion live and send questions to him via Twitter (using the hashtag #AskOliver to @WorldSciFest).
The conversation, at Cooper Union in New York City, will canvass the rich cultural history and contemporary science of the hallucinatory experience and will also touch on Sacks’ own early psychedelic forays that helped convince him to dedicate his life to neurology and to write about the myriad riddles of the human mind.
Can’t wait? Listen to the Nature podcast interview with Sacks by Kerri Smith, Nature’s podcast editor. Sacks recounts some interesting drug-induced trips, including one in which he has a philosophical discussion with a spider.
