Video Segment-1. Video recorded before HBO2 treatment. The patient was asked to carry out several orders: to open his mouth, to stick out his tongue, to close his eyes, to pretend to smoke a cigarette. Afterward we asked him to count backward starting from 100. He was completely unable to speak and stereotyped movements are visible at this point. He was also unable to read. Finally, we asked the patient to write his name and to copy a drawing. (WMV 11682 kb)

Video Segment-2. Video recorded after the last HBO2 treatment session. The patient was asked to carry out the same orders as at in the previous examination. We asked him to close his eyes, to open his mouth and to show his tongue; he was asked to show how to smoke a cigarette. He was instructed to count backward beginning from 100 and to read a short story. Finally, we asked him to write his name and to copy a drawing. (WMV 7820 kb)
