Abstract

Comments on an article by Raechelle M. Gibson et al. (see record [rid]2015-06862-001[/rid]). In the Journal, Raechelle M. Gibson et al. report the validation of the use of two functional brain imaging techniques to complete the bedside clinical examinations for the diagnosis of and communication with patients suffering from disorders of consciousness like vegetative state (VS) or minimally conscious state (MCS). Previous works with experienced volunteers seemed to enhance single-trial detectability of imagined movements when they imagine actions involving the sport or instrument with which they have experience. Nevertheless, Gibson and colleagues found no positive results for any patient in the familiar imagery task. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
