On August 30, 2015, the AANE community lost a beloved and inspiring leader and advocate when author and neurologist Oliver Sacks passed away from cancer. Dr. Sacks had an incomparable knowledge of the brain and its fascinating mysteries and puzzles. He was able to share that knowledge with both professionals and lay people through his elegant and compelling writing. His original and penetrating mind, and his deep empathy and respect for his patients, illuminate every page of Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat.
