The time of death in the hospital is usually recorded when the heart stops beating. This usually indicates that the rest of the body does not have a blood supply to support the cells of our organs, including the brain. However, numerous studies have shown activity in the brain after “death” and may raise questions about when “death” actually occurs.
Nobody has the right information about this. Scientists have some information, but the question remains a mystery.
However, some scientists recently conducted a study that provides interesting information about neuroscience.
The study was conducted by scientists from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Charity, Berlin, and Ohio under the direction of Jeans Dryer.
To do this, scientists closely monitored the nervous systems of some patients and obtained permission from the families of these patients.
These people were either injured in a serious traffic accident or suffered a heart attack.
Scientists have found that human and animal brains function the same way at death.
The main purpose of this research was not only to monitor the brain at the time of death but also to find out how someone could be saved in the last moments of their life.
Everything we know about the “dead brain” from scientists prior to this research is based on animal studies.
We know that when we die
The blood circulation in the body stops and this leads to a lack of oxygen in the brain.
In this condition, known as cerebral ischemia, the chemical components are depleted, causing the brain to lose its electrical activity.
This process of cooling the brain is believed to be triggered by neurons storing their own energy, but storing energy doesn’t work because the fear of death still lingers.
Eventually, tissue repair becomes impossible.
What happens to a human brain when it dies?
However, this team of scientists wanted to better understand the whole process in terms of humans.
Therefore, they monitored the neurological activity of some patients. Doctors had advised not to try to use electrode strips, etc.
Scientists found that eight out of nine patients’ brain cells were trying to avoid death. They found that brain cells and neurons were still working after the heart stopped beating.
To do this, the cells use the circulating blood and generate chemical energy and oxygen from it. According to scientists, when the body dies and blood flow to the brain stops, the dying neurons try to harness the baby’s energy.
Electrochemical imbalances lead to the destruction of brain cells, causing thermal energy to escape and then death.
But research shows that death is just as powerful today as it is in the future.
“Expansive depolarization initiates and then terminates the cellular transformation, but that is not dead because the depolarization can be reversed by restoring the energy supply,” says Janes Dryer.
