(By Kelly McDonald Jr) Recently, doctors in Canada discovered an unusual phenomena: someone who died had brain activity 10 minutes after death. This occurred despite having no pulse or blood pressure. The brain emitted brain waves (called delta waves) usually detected during sleep. Scientists involved in the study by University of Western Ontario are not rushing to conclusions about this event because it only has happened to one person.

Other studies have shown that strange and unexplained events can happen after a person dies. Another study from 2016 found that over 1,000 genes in some human cadavers sprang to life up to 4 days after death. At the very least, we can propose the idea that death is a unique experience for everyone. This report shows us how little we really know about the process of death; however, it generates curiosity as to what we will discover in the future.
