Waking Up

Every year, an awful number of car crashes, strokes, failed suicides, carbon monoxide poisonings, and drowning accidents leave adults and children dramatically crippled. Comatose and quadriplegic, unable to move and speak, they seem to have lost the very spark of mental life. And yet deep inside, consciousness may still linger.

In The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas painted a dramatic picture of how an intact consciousness may be buried alive inside the tomb of a paralyzed body. Monsieur Noirtier is a fictional character—probably the first literary description of a locked-in syndrome. His medical condition, however, is all too real. Jean-Dominique Bauby, the editor of the…

 Waking Up

What is certain is that, in the next decades, the renewed interest in coma and vegetative states, based on an increasingly solid theory of how neuronal circuits engender conscious states, will lead to massive improvements in medical care. We are in for a revolution in the treatment of disorders of consciousness.
