Brain Scans of Dying Man Suggest Life Flashes Before Our Eyes Upon Death

by Corryn Wetzel/Smithsonianmag.com

New research is revealing what happens in the brain during our final moments of life. When scientists recorded the brainwaves of a dying man, he appeared to go through a sudden flash of memories seconds before and after his heart stopped beating. This first-of-its-kind study suggests we may experience a flood of memories when we die.

In the research published last week in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience, doctors took brain scans of an 87-year-old Canadian patient with epilepsy. The team was performing a test that detects electrical activity in the brain, called an electroencephalogram (EEG), to learn more about what was happening during his seizures.

The elderly man had an unexpected heart attack and died during the procedure and, in accordance with the patient’s Do-Not-Resuscitate status, the doctors did not attempt any further treatment and the man soon passed away, reports Ed Cara for Gizmodo.

Because the EEG machine kept running, doctors got a glimpse into the man’s brain activity at the end of his life. Such scans had never before been captured on a dying individual.

  1. I would theorize that this type of activity is also present when large numbers of people pass during a calamity event, such as the Indonesian Tsunami, and massive data transfers take place within the species wide consciousness. A “review” does not make much sense from a biological perspective, but from a “remote consciousness’ perspective makes all kinds of sense.
    Certain people and animals can “sense” this transfer. Owls among them.
