Abstract

Different states of unawareness are present following a coma in the braininjured population. An attempt to answer three questions is made based on a review of the literature and multiple case studies:

The theoretical paradigm strongly suggests employing learning theory to target a precise behavior to unmask learning potential and to use known remediation mechanisms such as errorless learning or implicit learning. Speculations in the area of unmasking potential are available; these require intervention to target specific function that could be lost with nonuse.
