Brain Works: The Theatre of Neuroscience

Double Windsor

The Double Windsor knot is elegant, dignified, and difficult to tie under the best of circumstances – and seemingly impossible if you’ve suffered a stroke and lost the use of your left hand. Inspired by one of Dr. Leuthardt’s patients, this story demonstrates how new therapies and emerging technologies, such as the brain-computer interface, are making second chances possible for people who have experienced stroke and other traumatic brain injuries.
