Psychologist Niels Birbaumer has spent a great part of his career dealing with people whose bodies have failed them. He published a paper in 2008 about the quality of life among people who have lost the ability to control their bodies, many of whom needed a breathing tube to live. In new research published this week, Birbaumer reports he has found a way to communicate with people who are literally trapped in their bodies. VOA's Kevin Enochs has details.
