    Henrietta Lacks died a long time ago, but her cells still live and will live for a long time.


    And this is cancer. Once upon a time, it originated in an animal from the canid family, and then became a sexually transmitted disease. Also, in a sense, lives, although the brain is long dead.

  2. As applied to the individual, no. Brain death = subsequent death of the entire body.�

    As for the sociological approach, this is precisely the dream of any elite in any society: that brainless, to the maximum extent possible, creatures simply continue to multiply, providing this elite with cheap labor ) All current demographic and socio-economic trends pursue exactly this goal.

  3. This happens every time a person dies. The brain at room temperature dies 15 minutes after stopping breathing.But the rest of the body is still alive and dying in parts after 15 minutes. For example, hair and nails continue to grow for 3-4 days.

  4. Somewhere in the late 40s, early 50s of the last century in the city of Kasimov, in the Ryazan region, a frozen person was brought to the local regional hospital in the winter. The doctor on duty with a clear conscience diagnosed DEATH FROM HYPOTHERMIA and ordered to send the body to the morgue, but, purely by chance, the then young and ambitious surgeon Boris Iosifovich Steinfeld turned out to be there. He started resuscitating and-lo and behold! – my heart started working, my breath appeared! – Relatives of the revived person kissed the hands of Boris Iosifovich, called him a wizard, REJOICED EARLY – the body came to life, but the cerebral cortex, unfortunately, died off and the revived person existed only as a VEGETABLE, i.e. there was no consciousness, he walked only under himself, had to be fed artificially, etc. Fortunately, nature can be merciful – there was a new scourge – PNEUMONIA, and since antibiotics were exotic in Kasimov at that time, the patient soon died safely from pneumonia.

  5. Not quite. Possible death or deep disruption of the cerebral cortex and all that is responsible for “intelligent”, consciousness and behavior, leaving the vital parts of the brain responsible for breathing, vegetatics, etc. The vital parts are the last to die during oxygen starvation, so this scenario is quite real. It is called a vegetative state. They are sometimes returned from it, so it is the subject of study.

    Death separately of the brain from the body is possible in some situations, but only if the person is under artificial ventilation and a circulatory system. Since it is very expensive to be under them, and there is no way back, brain death is equated with biological death, and after the diagnosis of this condition, life support is turned off.

  6. I would like to read the answer of someone who really understands, but purely from logical reasoning. The joke is at the beginning, half of the people there are calmly without a brain. Now more seriously. If we talk about a person, then probably the entire brain cannot be removed so that a person can continue to live in peace. But half exactly or part of it. Read more on the Internet.

    Second again, I'm afraid to make a mistake, but there are beings (if we move away from the question of a person) exist completely without a brain and even without a nucleus, so for them the presence of a brain is not necessary.

    Well, back to the question of people who seem to have a brain but forgot to enable it, license it, update it, and God knows what else…although this philosophy will drag on for a long time and has nothing to do with the issue )
