Coma victim awakes after 19 years: Brain completely rewired with "novel anatomical structures"

A guy who regained consciousness after 19 years in a coma had essentially rewired his brain, in novel ways.
Wallis’s brain had, very gradually, developed new pathways and completely novel anatomical structures to re-establish functional connections, compensating for the brain pathways lost in the accident.

We are told that a study of the results shows that "far greater potential for recovery and regeneration then ever suspected."

In other words, the dogma - flatly stated to many of us - that brains cannot regenerate, is simply wrong.

We do well to be skeptical nowadays of any "brain is a piece of meat" dogma originating in materialism. Hey, the life you save may be your own.
