Editorial

Earlier this year, when Adrian Owen's team were all over the news following their apparently successful attempts to communicate with patients who had been classified
as in a vegetative state (see p.478),  I read an account from a similar case. It was horrendous: the visits from relatives slowly drying up, a fly crawling across the ceiling considered a good day. As psychologist Chris Frith has said, 'It is difficult to imagine a worse experience than to be a functioning mind trapped in a body over which you have absolutely no control.'
So surely anything that psychologists can do to 'give a voice to the voiceless' should be welcomed? Not all psychologists are convinced. On p.450, Celia Kitzinger offers a measured response and calls for psychologists to become more critically engaged in the issues the research raises. 

Dr Jon Sutton (Managing Editor)
