(DailyMail) — Life may continue even after death – just in sleep mode.
Doctors have found scientific evidence that people’s brains can continue to work after they are clinically dead.
A patient showed persistent brain activity for ten minutes after their heart stopped and experienced brain waves we normally get during deep sleep.
Doctors in a Canadian intensive care unit described the case as extraordinary and unexplained.
Researchers from the University of Western Ontario in Canada assessed electric impulses in the brain in relation to the beating of someone’s heart after life-sustaining therapy was removed.
Brain inactivity preceded the heart stopping in three of the four cases.
However, in one of the cases, the patient’s brain continued to work after their heart stopped.
‘In one patient, single delta wave bursts persisted following the cessation of both the cardiac rhythm and arterial blood pressure (ABP),’ the researchers said.
There was significant differences in electrical activity in the brain between the 30-minute period before and the 5-minute period after the heart stopped.
