Scientists ‘talk’ to coma patient

A brain-damaged man is able to respond to simple questions, doctors discover.

Scientists in Europe say they have managed to communicate with a man who is in a persistent vegetative state.

The medical team used standard technology to monitor the thoughts of people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.

Eventually, one man was able to answer simple questions – raising some interesting ethical questions.
