Getting up from a Coma
The brain is one of the most powerful things we have and at the same time it’s really fragile, all it takes is the wrong knock on the head and you could end up in a coma.

Mtich talks with Gerald Edmunds the Secretary General of the Brain Foundation on comas, what can be done and the often unheard of aspects of them.
