Science behind Near-Death Experiences

Accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) commonly involve vivid sensory experiences, like visions of a white light or one’s life flashing before one’s eyes, that are often attributed to supernatural forces. Researchers, however, believe there is a physiological explanation for this phenomenon. In the seconds immediately following cardiac death, rat brains experience a surge of electrical activity. While this has yet to be studied in human brains, it stands to reason that they enter a similar state of hyperactivity after clinical death and that this could give rise to a heightened state of consciousnessand induce visions like those often associated with NDEs. More… Discuss
