The scientists picked up a video at the moment of cell death in the worms, which is still alive, showing how the body stiffens when cells die, opening the way to understanding the process of death when it relates to aging in humans.
In the video, the researchers used a blue phosphorus material whose rapid spread revealed how death spreads from one cell to another "like a house burning or wildfire."
Human consciousness continues after death
In October 2017, scientists discovered that human consciousness continues to function after the body stops showing signs of life, meaning that the dead know of their death, and there is evidence that a dead person may hear until the doctors announce his death.
A team from the University of New York studied the people who suffered from cardiac arrest and "returned" to life.
"These people were able to describe the doctors and nurses who were with them in the room," Dr. Sam Barnier told the Science Life website. "They discovered the full conversations between doctors and nursing staff and everything that was happening around them," doctors and nurses confirmed. that".
The researchers explain that death occurs when the heart stops working, thus interrupting the flow of blood to the brain.
Once that happens, the brain stops functioning, but brain cells take hours to die, which makes a person feel what is happening.
