    City Arts & Lectures Oliver Sacks Dr. Oliver Sacks is a practicing physician, professor of neurology and psychiatry, and the author of 10 books, including "The Mind's Eye," "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat" and "Awakenings," which inspired the Oscar-nominated film. His newest book, "Hallucinations," is a provocative investigation into auditory, visual, tactile and olfactory misperceptions, their physiological sources, and their personal and cultural resonances. In addition to drug-inspired varieties, Sacks examines the many different types of non-psychotic hallucination caused by various illnesses or injuries, by intoxication -- even, for many people, by falling sleep. Sacks appeared in conversation with Roy Eisenhardt on November 12, 2012.

    All Things Considered Russia-Adoption Ban In a tit-for-tat measure, Russia's parliament has approved a bill to ban adoptions of Russian children by American citizens. President Putin has not said whether he will sign the bill, though he has voiced support for the measure. The move is in retaliation for a U.S. law that sanctions Russians accused of human rights abuses.
