Interesting,,,

I think part of my confusion comes from Batemans article highlighting neuroanatomical bases of coma. This article gives explanation and instruction on how to perform various neurological assessment for this population. What I am confused about is, how is it possible to ask a patient to open their eyes and perform movements if they are in a coma?
