Breaking the silence

I find this simply amazing: “With one [vegetative state] patient – a Belgian man injured in a traffic accident seven years ago – they asked a series of questions.  He was able to communicate ‘yes’ and ‘no’ using just his thoughts.  The team told him to use ‘motor’ imagery like a tennis match to indicate ‘yes’ and ‘spatial’ imagery like thinking about roaming the streets for a ‘no’.”
