Visual pursuit is a key descriptor of the minimally conscious state (above 80% of cases). It is also observable in about 20% of subjects in vegetative state. Its reappearance after severe brain damage anticipates a favorable outcome, with recovery of consciousness in 73% of subjects (45% in the absence of it). We considered retrospectively 395 subjects in vegetative state because of traumatic (63%), massive acute vascular (30%), or diffuse anoxic-hypoxic (7%) brain damage consecutively admitted… Expand
