Another one to add to the list of brain lesions / malfunctions as clues to the workings of mind. Faced with an otherwise fully functioning brain and the total inability to communicate Belgian Rom Houben, simply had to dream to fill his time – for 23 years !
[Today – Sat 28th – apparently scientific scepticism about his actual state & recovery. And I have to say listening to the interview with another PVS / Locked-in patient (Martin ?) – via the communication system – I’m sceptical if the description is representative of the Houben case.]
