Oliver Sacks

Neurologist and author Dr. Oliver Sacks passed away this weekend.  Dr. Sacks was a skilled clinician who had a special talent for concisely and lucidly bringing the world of neurology to the mainstream through his many books and articles.  His writings influenced many in the field of medicine, particularly those in disciplines related to brain injury.  His wit, warmth and knowledge will be dearly missed.  Below is an obituary describing his life and accomplishments in more detail:
