'[EE]:: Deep brain stimulator wakes man from 6 year'

A man with severe brain injuries who spent six years in a
near-vegetative state can now chew his food, watch a movie and talk
with family thanks to a brain pacemaker that may change the way such
patients are treated.
The 38-year-old man is the first person in a minimally conscious state
to be treated with deep-brain stimulation, a treatment that uses a
pacemaker and two electrodes to send impulses into a part of the brain
regulating consciousness.

His current state doesn't sound especially marvellous but " ...
playing cards ... " sounds like it *may* indicate a better level of
recovery than the other indicators.
