The Author (Oliver Sacks) - This man is a noted neurologist, scientific investigator, physician, and writer. He challenges traditional thinking and practice around neurological science, considering it in relation to a patient's complete state of being and not, as he suggests most neurologists do, as a single isolated element of a patient's life.

A.R. Luria - This man was a noted Russian scientist, researcher, and writer. He blended anatomical studies of the human nervous system with analysis of human behavior to become one of the founding practitioners of neuro-psychology.
