Red face Dead pigs partially coming back to life IN HELL

What the FUCK

Quote:
The Yale University research team is careful to say that none of the brains regained the kind of organized electrical activity associated with consciousness or awareness. Still, the experiment described Wednesday in the journal Nature showed that a surprising amount of cellular function was either preserved or restored.
Quote:
"We found that tissue and cellular structure is preserved and cell death is reduced. In addition, some molecular and cellular functions were restored," Sestan says. "This is not a living brain, but it is a cellularly active brain."
Quote:
The special solution pumped into the brains included the anti-seizure drug lamotrigine, which is known to block or dampen neuronal activity. That's because "the researchers thought that brain cells might be better preserved and their function might be better restored if they were not active," Latham says.

But tests done on single cells taken from the pig brains, which involved washing off the solution, showed that individual cells were capable of electrochemical responses. So it's unclear whether the team would have seen global electrical activity linked to consciousness in the pig brains if the neuronal-activity blocker had been left out of the treatment or if the blocker had been removed after cells had partly revived.

You [topleybird] are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Unhappy

Seems like they could bring all the frogs and [scientists are trying to make] bees back to life with this procedure, ending all the world's ills, I think I'm remembering them all

On the other hand, a Republican-led Senate could pass a law allowing your employer to reanimate you as a soulless automaton after your death and make your husk continue to work without pay until the brain is destroyed

So on balance, this advancement seems good and cool

No, I do not watch television shows.

If I watch motion pictures, it's either the works of Bela Tarr or My Neighbor Totoro for the bazillionth time.

i take lamotrigine. am i immortal?

that's really cool though, good implications for people with brain damage or who died because of brain death primarily (certain traumas, suffocation, drowning, etc)

According to how they used it, I think you may instead be partially brain-dead; I am sorry to be the bearer of this news

Hearing rumblings within the upper echelons of the scientific community that 'Oumuamua, the extrasolar asteroid that visited us in 2017, imparted the secret of deathless life before continuing on its journey

I’ll bet they’re celebrating this news by decomposing rigorously!

I am not sure why more people aren't freaked out as hell by this! I personally think its amazeballs, but kinda scary.

What really gets me is that third part I quoted, where they'd intentionally dampened neuronal activity and have no idea if the pig heads would have for-real returned to consciousness if they'd just left that chemical out of the experiment

That's some real life Frankenstein shit and, yeah, I have no idea why this was basically a one-day news story

The next headline will be "DEATH DEFEATED" and everyone will be like "Oh yeah, the pig heads, I forgot"

They used the same process on Hilary to hide the fact that she died six years ago.

Yep — I never watched the sitcom but this is apparently a much darker, more serious take (though still pretty goofy at times)

It's about Satan's plans for Sabrina

And it seems to piss an awful lot of viewers off that Salem the cat doesn't talk in this one
