We need to take a closer look at the wisdom of these medical decisions, which are all too often not based on sound scientific evidence but on the doctor's gloomy outlook for these severely disabled patients.  The following are some stories of patients who have recovered from comas.

But the remaining part of his brain has adjusted, the team at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh reported in the journal  Cell Reports . Read the rest of the story:
