Awareness and the presence of intent, both in everyday life and in the clinic, are inferred primarily through our behaviour. But what if you were aware but unable to express it? Modern neuroscience is uncovering rare but remarkable examples of such awareness in the so-called vegetative state, with profound implications for a caring society. Using visualisations backed up by evidence, I will highlight what current research can tell us about the neural correlates of consciousness in health and disease, and how this understanding is helping us identify crucial brain networks that could support hidden awareness in some seemingly vegetative patients.
