Jana is invited to a very special ping-pong duel today. The challenge: It is played without a racket, instead only with the power of thought! Her opponent is brain researcher Prof. Dr. Surjo Soekadar - and he's not just good at playing mind-ping-pong. With his research, he enables paralyzed people to move their hands again. After a little training, Jana is even allowed to try out for herself how this works. She also meets Phillip. He lost his left arm in an accident and wears a different kind of high-tech prosthesis. How can Phillip move the fingers of his prosthesis with his mind? Why a mirror helps him do it? And what is a thought anyway? That's what this episode of "nine-and-a-half" shows.
