When a person suffers a brain injury and is in a coma, family members like to speak to the person with hope that they can hear them.
Now that there is medical proof that shows that voice can go deep into the brain, medcial experts want to try and use this to heal. One 20-year-old college student was injured in a snowmobile accident and was left in a coma due to the damage done to his brain.
His family spoke to him everyday even though they said doctors gave them no hope that this would help. Then, a neurologist came in that has been studying the voice’s effect on the brain and she began to have the college student listen to families stories through headphones each day.
The familiar voice sparked more brain activity in the young man’s brain. It is not known whether it was the voices, therapy or a miracle, but the young man woke up two and a half months later and said that he remembers the stories that he listened to.
