Sharon's brains responded to pictures of his relatives


After seven years of coma, the Soroka hospital announced that significant brain activity was found in former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, that reactions were demonstrated to pictures displaced of family members.


Last Thursday Sharon was examined by the device "Functional magnetic resonance imaging" (fmri), a device that creates precise imaging and three-dimensional brain regions in a demonstration of brain activity. The scanning is continued for about two hours, and during which Sharon was presented with pictures of his family, the voice of his son Gilad was played, and more.


According to the researchers, the results suggest the existence of sensory information processing Sharon's mind. But tests designed to measure the level of awareness of Sharon environment, did not indicate that he is aware of his surroundings.

The Sheba Medical Center, where Sharon was staying had made it clear that Sharon was never defined as suffering from a coma, but as someone suffering from "low conscious level".


Staff at Sheba claim that during the six years he spent in the rehabilitation center of the hospital Sharon responded to intractable voice and vision, responded inconsistently with eye and finger movement, and this condition remained the same and unchanged.


According to the current test Sheba reinforces their diagnosis.

The test was conducted after the hospital turned to Sharon's family and offered to use the test as leverage for future research and to help other families whose loved ones are in a similar situation.


When completed, Sharon was returned for hospitalization at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer.


Sharon, 84, fell into a coma on January 4, 2006. He was hospitalized at the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem and then later transferred to Tel Hashomer.
