Connecting the dots 2.0

October 27, 2006 Comments off

This is an absolutely amazing post from Scott Adams, the author of the famous Dilbert cartoons.  In summary he lost his ability to speak under normal circumstances because of a rare neural disorder.  Basically his brain forgot how to communicate to his vocal cords.

Well, the other night his brain made the connection again.  I can only imagine his excitement at the time.


When I say my brain remapped, that’s the best description I have. During the worst of my voice problems, I would know in advance that I couldn’t get a word out. It was if I could feel the lack of connection between my brain and my vocal cords. But suddenly, yesterday, I felt the connection again. It wasn’t just being able to speak, it was KNOWING how. The knowing returned.

I still don’t know if this is permanent. But I do know that for one day I got to speak normally. And this is one of the happiest days of my life.
