Neurologists studying the brains of nine patients as they died have found surprising information about what happens to your brain after it dies.  According to the new study, death is marked by a final wave of electrical activity in our brains called “spreading depression.” This “spreading depression” is a final flurry of activity that occurs in the brain before it finally shuts down, according to the experts.  The findings

suggest that it could be possible to reboot the brain for as long as three to five minutes after a human heart stops beating or ceases to show signs of life. The study, which was carried out by a team of neurologists including some from the Charité–Universitätsmedizin Berlin, followed nine patients with devastating brain injuries who had Do Not Resuscitate orders.By analysing electrical signals in their brains as they died, the researchers hoped to find new information about the timeline of dying – and they  have.  READ MORE
