The BBC-TV program Panorama recently ran a documentary titled The Mind Reader; Unlocking My Voice which showed how patient in a vegetative state were able to communicate with the outside world.

Despite being produced in the UK, this documentary had a very distinct Canadian flavour. The program featured Western neuroscientist Adrian Owen and captured the first time Owen’s team of Western researchers had a patient in a vegetative state successfully respond to a specific question about their personal situation.

Way to go Canada!
