When would you consider a person physically dead? After their heart stops beating? New research finds that the heart ceasing to beat and the lungs failing to breathe are only the first steps in the body dying. Once the brain is deprived of oxygen, the cells are told to die, but it’s a process of signals. Researchers say it’s possible to disrupt these signals and delay the death process of the cells, and one way of doing that is to put the body into hypothermia. Researchers are learning how to limit brain damage by carefully rewarming the body, and carefully reintroducing oxygen into the system. Bring the dead back to life?! Turns out Dr. Frankenstein’s not the only one who can do it!
