How does the brain perceive and interpret information from the eye? And what happens when the process is disrupted? In The Mind´s Eye, Oliver Sacks tells the stories of people who are able to navigate the world and communicate with others despite losing what many of us consider indispensable senses and abilities: the capacity to recognize faces, the sense of three-dimensional space, the ability to read, the sense of sight. For all of these people, the challenge is to adapt to a radically new way of being in the world -- and The Mind´s Eye is testament to the myriad ways that we, as humans, are capable of rising to this challenge.
