Sunday, 6 March 2005

The work of the internationally renowned author and neurologist, Oliver Sacks, has been central in helping us understand how the mind works. His book Awakenings (1973), about patients caught for decades in a frozen state, inspired the Oscar-nominated film of the same name.

Sacks grew up in London and his marvellous memoir, Uncle Tungsten: Memories of a Chemical Boyhood (2001), won the Jewish Quarterly Wingate Prize.

In conversation with Ned Temko, he spoke about the influence of Sigmund Freud and the power of memory to shape identity.
