Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Burned-out "boy genius" Neal Eberhardt (Ralph Macchio) gets back in the good graces of the scientific community with his creation of the Neural Stimulation Inter-Cortex Array. This device can be used to stimulate the intellects of brain-dead comatose patients, building electronic pathways around the damaged brain cells. Ultimately, Eberhardt uses his invention on himself -- only to discover that some intellects are best left unstimulated. "The Other Side" first aired on February 19, 1999.
