permanent vegetative state

An insomnia drug is able to help people in a permanent vegetative state, which is really good news even if the effect is only temporary. It is beleived to work because it would normally effect the areas of the brain that are now dead, but since they are no longer there it triggers other areas into action that are capable of replicating the dead areas for short periods of time (4 hours or so). Hopefully in time as what is happening is better understood the time will be extended. Clock up another result for the evil drugs companies.
