Wave of Death

Despite the confused appearance of zombies, most are portrayed as having a kind of sentience. It’s why you have to keep the lights off at night and keep as quiet as possible. The slightest sound or glimpse of a human is enough to prompt an attack. However, this awareness would be impossible because brain function is one of the first functions to deactivate after death.

In a 2011 study performed by Anton Coenen, several rats were beheaded to test how long consciousness lingers. Brain activity was measured with an EEG. After 17 seconds, the readings went to zero, indicating lack of brain function.

Approximately one minute later, there was a spike in the EEG, a last “wave of death” through the brain before the readings stayed permanently at zero. Without this brain power, such relatively high sentience cannot be found in the average zombie.

BEAUTIFUL DETAILED PICTURES OF EARTH

The most detailed pictures of the Earth to date has been released by the US Department of Commerce, and it shows how beautiful our planet is. With a resolution four times larger than any other image of the planet ever made, the record was made on January 15 by the climate monitoring satellite GOES-16. Launched in November last year, the satellite sends updated Earth photos every 15 minutes. The high resolution image helps meteorologists identify the location of potentially dangerous climates with greater accuracy. Here you can see the pictures.
