A 38 year-old man who remained a hair above conscious for six years experienced remarkable improvement yesterday.  After neuroscientists used electrical stimulation, applied directly to his brain, the man gained use of his left arm.  He also used coherent speech for the first time in six years.  Experts at the annual meeting of Society for Neuroscience in Atlanta were excited, for findings could positively effect anywhere from 100,000-200,000 Americans suffering in partial consciousness.
