Patient Back From Vegetative State - Neuroscience News

After 15 years in a vegetative state, a procedure of brain stimulation brought the patient back.  I am shocked not only at this procedure, but also the ramifications of what that means for the person.  Just think about what 15 years ago was like and imagine the patient waking up in today's world.

While the patient is not fully recovered, the results build hope that what they have learned in this situation will bring hope for others.  It may also help us find breakthroughs that will take us into improved levels of care and recovery.

You can read the full article on the website page in the Scientific American.
