D espite the wide application of functional neuroimaging techniques to the study of neurological disorders, few reports have examined patterns of brain activity following severe injuries. In this review, we discuss recent functional brain imaging studies of patients in the vegetative state (VS) and pilot studies of patients meeting diagnostic criteria for the newly formulated minimally conscious state (MCS). These neuroimaging studies support the clinical model of VS and provide… CONTINUE READING
