Scientific Evidence Boosts Action for Activists, Decreases Action for Scientists

Newswise: Pig Experiment Raises Ethical Questions Around Brain Damage

Pig Experiment Raises Ethical Questions Around Brain Damage

Case Western Reserve University

The brain is more resilient than previously thought. In a groundbreaking experiment published in this week’s issue of Nature, neuroscientists created an artificial circulation system that successfully restored some functions and structures in donated pig brains—up to four hours after the pigs were butchered at a USDA food processing facility. Though there was no evidence of restored consciousness, brains from the pigs were without oxygen for hours, yet could still support key functions provided by the artificial system. The result challenges the notion that mammalian brains are fully and irreversibly damaged by a lack of oxygen.
