opportunity not only to rebuild homes, businesses, and hospitals, but

 roadDoctors communicate with man in coma by asking him to think of things: "They devised a technique to enable the man, now 29, to answer yes and no
to ­simple questions through the use of a hi-tech scanner, monitoring
his brain ­activity. To answer yes, he was told to think of playing tennis, a motor
activity. To answer no, he was told to think of wandering from room to
room in his home, visualising everything he would expect to see there,
creating activity in the part of the brain governing spatial awareness. His
doctors were amazed when the patient gave the correct answers to a
series of questions about his family."
