In his latest book Hallucinations, neurologist Oliver Sacks collects stories of individuals who can see, hear and smell things that aren't really there—such as strange voices, or collages of unrecognizable faces—and explores the disorders and drugs that can produce such illusions. This interview was originally broadcast on November 9, 2012.
