Caption: Cognition test for coma patient. The recovering patient (lower left) is undergoing a neuropsychological test called the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST). This tests the patient's ability to sort and match the cards. This patient is being cared for at the Awakening Unit of the St John the Baptist Hospital, Rome, Italy. This unit, which opened in 1997, has advanced radiology and diagnostic equipment for assessing patients with head and brain injuries, and those in a coma. The medical staff specialise in rehabilitation, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, aimed at helping patients to recover from their injuries.
