It is assumed that all animals die as soon as their brains die. However, scientists have recently managed to disprove this fact by restoring brain cell activity in a pig 4 hours after the animal’s death.
The experiment, carried out by scientists at Yale University, used the heads of animals killed at a slaughterhouse. After 4 hours, they removed the brains of 32 animals and submerged them in a special liquid with a similar composition to blood. It was enriched with oxygen, sugar and other elements necessary for any living being.
Another 6 hours later, something unbelievable happened: the dead pigs’ brains started showing metabolic activity, taking in sugar and oxygen. After observing the neurons under a microscope, the researchers noted that many of them looked exactly like healthy neurons.
This discovery has launched a widespread discussion about brain disease treatment and brain resistance to disintegration.
