Scientists from Israel, representing the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, prove that it is possible to get memories of a person after his death.
Details about the work of Israeli researchers says the scientific journal New Scientist. According to the publication, neuroscientists were able to establish that memories are formed in seven specific areas of the brain – this process depends on certain proteins. Look at their “fingerprint” to determine the type of memories even after death, said the authors of the unusual project.
For the experiments on the study of the formation of memories in the brain of a living being was used of the mouse. The researchers found that animals have memories of pleasure or pain was formed in the brain when the inclusion of certain proteins and genes.
Scientists said that if we analyze the brain very quickly after death, within a few minutes, you can get information about memories of the deceased beings. An experiment with mice has allowed scientists to conclude that emotions leave in the brain of his mark, which, however, disappears with time.
“We found that experiences of different nature leave a different “fingerprint” in the brain activity of mice. Even after death proteins formed by “drawing” in the brain is possible with 90% accuracy to determine what kind of emotions the mouse has experienced, and which character was her memories,” – said the authors in the journal.
