Just seen on TV that Oliver Sacks could not remember faces. They showed him pics of Elvis, Obama and someone else I didn't recognise (!!) and OS could not say who any of them were.

Yes RIP this interesting and interested man. He really seemed to care about the people he worked with quite apart from seeing them as interesting research patients.
