Abstract

Despite rigorous clinical assessment, many patients in the vegetative state are misdiagnosed. The EEG method that we developed is cheap, portable, widely available, and objective. It could allow for the rediagnosis of patients who, behaviourally, seem to be entirely vegetative, but who might have residual cognitive function and conscious awareness.
