A groundbreaking trial to see if it is possible to regenerate the brains of dead people, has won approval from health watchdogs.
A biotech company in the US has been granted ethical permission to recruit 20 patients who have been declared clinically dead from a traumatic brain injury, to test whether parts of their central nervous system can be brought back to life.
Scientists will use a combination of therapies, which include injecting the brain with stem cells and a cocktail of peptides, as well as deploying lasers and nerve stimulation techniques which have been shown to bring patients out of comas.
The trial participants will have been certified dead and only kept alive through life support. They will be monitored for several months using brain imaging equipment to look for signs of regeneration, particularly in the upper spinal cord - the lowest region of the brain stem which controls independent breathing and heartbeat.
The team believes that the brain stem cells may be able to erase their history and re-start life again, based on their surrounding tissue a process seen in the animal kingdom in creatures like salamanders who can regrow entire limbs....

Yes, this will all end well.
Is this about Ted?

The ‘Rats have been doing this every fourth November for 100 years.
I thought it was about Michael Corleone in Godfather 3 when he said, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in again!”
This is for brain injuries.
Doesn’t sound apllicable to old age.
No. Let the dead stay dead. It’s not just for physical reasons that we die. Some people are depleted spiritually or damaged emotionally, and have already experienced the deaths of their hope, faith or love of any kind. Let these people move on to the next plane of existence. Do not artificially tether them here, any longer than He commands.
The dead come back to life every 4yrs in illinois
Closer to 200 years.
When I leave this place, I don’t wish to return.
How often do you do that?
How fitting for the Undead.. ;-)
Think we can steal it, er, I mean, lease it for a while?
Does the recruitment process involve a certified seance technician so the patient can communicate consent?
Doesnt sound apllicable to old age.
This is the Umbrella Corporation, right?

What could possibly go wrong here...
