This panel seeks to celebrate the life and work of Oliver Sacks (1933-2015) – whose best-selling books were exemplary in bridging discourses and describing the life of the brain from a variety of viewpoints – by bringing together a panel of discussants from different disciplines: literature, neuroscience, medicine, religion, and psychoanalysis.
