Is death actually reversible? Scientists discover that eyes from organ donors could be 'brought back to life' in major breakthrough.


  •  Eyes from donors responded to even dim light 'the way they do in the living eye'
  • Cells in the retina respond to light and even communicate five hours after death 
  • If these extend to the brain, we could bring back living beings from the dead 
  • The ground-breaking findings ‘raises the question of whether brain death, as it is currently defined, is truly irreversible’


This breakthrough may bring back human consciousness.

To achieve their results, the scientists designed a special transportation unit that could restore oxygen and other nutrients to eyes as soon as they were removed from a donor.

The authors, writing in the journal Nature, said the study ‘raises the question of whether brain death, as it is currently defined, is truly irreversible’.
