Back From the Dead

In Chapter 13 of Into the Gray Zone, Adrian describes the case of Juan, a patient who appeared to be vegetative, but who was nevertheless able to describe everything that happened to him while in this condition. This BBC documentary describes Juan’s extraordinary case, including interviews with both Juan and Dr. Owen. As the host says: “Dr. Owen’s research is bringing us closer to understanding why patients like Juan recover, and how we can identify others like him so that we can bring more people back from being locked in."
