Tests on comatose ex-Israeli PM Sharon show ‘significant brain activity’

Tests on comatose ex-Israeli PM Sharon show ‘significant brain activity’.

Doctors in Israel said Monday that they had detected “significant brain activity” during tests on former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who has been in a coma since he suffered a brain hemorrhage seven years ago. During two hours of tests late last week, brain scientists showed Sharon pictures of his family, had him listen to his son’s voice and employed tactile stimulation. They were surprised when scans indicated his brain was processing the stimuli appropriately.
