Join famed neurologist Oliver Sacks and award-winning journalist John Hockenberry as they discuss Sacks’ latest book, which explores the bewitching and surreal world of hallucinations.

The conversation 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.
