Scientists restore some functions in a pig’s BRAIN hours after it died

Scientists bring some functions in a pig’s BRAIN ‘back to life’ — four hours after the farm animal died„.

Scientists have been able to partially revive the brains of decapitated pigs that died four hours earlier in a groundbreaking study.

Experts used tubes that pumped a chemical mixture designed to mimic blood into the decapitated heads of 32 pigs to restore circulation and cellular activity.

Echoing Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein, billions of neurons began acting normally and the deaths of other cells was reduced over the course of six hours.
