Famed neurologist Oliver Sacks joined award-winning journalist John Hockenberry to discuss Sacks' latest book, which explores the bewitching and surreal world of hallucinations. The conversation canvassed the rich cultural history and contemporary science of the hallucinatory experience, and also touched 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.
