WATCH: Whitehall Woman's Story Airs on '60 Minutes'

Jan Scheuermann's story was originally scheduled to be broadcast on Dec. 16.

UPDATE: The "60 Minutes" piece on Scheuermann is now available online here.

Jan Scheuermann, the Whitehall Borough woman whose groundbreaking brain science story was detailed in a UPMC video and Dec. 18 Patch article, will appear on a nationally televised episode of CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday night.

Scheuermann's story was originally scheduled to be broadcast on Dec. 16, but it was preempted by coverage of the .

Her episode will now air on Dec. 30 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time.

As part of a UPMC and University of Pittsburgh brain-computer interface study, Scheuermann, a quadriplegic, has had two quarter-inch, square electrode grids placed in the regions of her brain that would normally control her right arm and right hand movement.

The results, as you can see on this "60 Minutes" preview, are incredible.

Jan way to go, watching you use muscles that you haven't used in years had tears in my eyes. One day I hope you are able to use the machine at home and use it there.
