A group of neurosurgeons from the US tried to effect a new method of removing a person from a coma. The method itself is dangerous. The patient gets on the table for surgery. During the procedure stimulates the brain with ultrasound waves.
In this case, the man long was in a coma after a very severe traumatic brain injury. Surgeons sent to the thalamus area of the ultrasonic pulses. The signal was sent for 30 seconds 10 times.
Three days after the procedure, the patient regained consciousness. Initial results are encouraging: after the coma, the patient perceived it, and was able to accomplish the simple movements of the extremities.
