NatGeo has come out with an interesting article :


"Scientists have restored cellular function in 32 pig brains that had been
dead for hours, opening up a new avenue in treating brain disease"

"Announced on Wednesday in the journal *Nature*, researchers at the Yale
University School of Medicine devised a system roughly analogous to a
dialysis machine, called BrainEx, that restores circulation and oxygen flow
to a dead brain."

"And technically, the pig brains remained dead—by design, the treated
brains did not show any signs of the organized electrical neural activity
required for awareness or consciousness.  "
