So you want to know more about how researchers brought a dead pig brain back to life outside its corpse.
Today we’re going to talk about this very subject, a pig-brain experiment the likes of which have brought about some ethical questions.
Yale neuroscientist Nenad Sestan wanted to know if a brain – an entire brain, not just the rudimentary parts – could be revived.
Revived, that is, several hours after the death of the owner of said brain.
To perform experiments to see about this zombie-making sort of situation, Sestan visited a local slaughterhouse.
Approximately four hours after each pig’s untimely death, a process was started.
