Scientists Record Increased Activity In Human Brain Moments Before Death
The researchers advised against making firm conclusions due to the limited sample size and the fact that the patients did not survive.

Research finds intriguing brain wave patterns in comatose patients.
For a very long time, mysteries surrounding death and experiences during and after a person’s death have challenged the minds of humans. The consequences of death on the human body and psyche have been the subject of numerous studies and trials.
Now a modest study has produced preliminary evidence of increased brain activity throughout the process of dying, which may be connected to consciousness.
Researchers from the University of Michigan in the US have discovered that two people’s brains experienced an increase in activity as they approached death. This phenomenon is similar to spikes in brain activity that have previously been observed in animals whose hearts had stopped beating.
