I know you for long time now, and I know there is lot of improvement in you & me as well. So I strongly believe as long as we are alive & try to do things new pathways are being built. now this study is proving the point so doctors can give people hope about their recovery outcome.

Hello Lenny, it sounds like a great test, I want to do one. I went to my doctor and she said I needed to go and see a neuro doctor, since i have not been to one since two years.
