Researchers Restore Synaptic Activity and Circulation to Four-hour Dead Pig Brain

Immunofluorescent stains for neurons (green), astrocytes (red), and cell nuclei (blue) in the hippocampal CA3 region of brains either left untreated for 10 hours after death (left) or subjected to perfusion with the BrainEx technology (right). Ten hours postmortem, neurons and astrocytes undergo cellular disintegration unless salvaged by the BrainEx system. Credit: Stefano G.
