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.
