In a groundbreaking new experiment, scientists brought dead eyes back to life.
Reversing death may appear to be something out of a science fiction or fantasy tale. But scientists were able to accomplish it using a pair of dead eyes.
In a groundbreaking operation, the eyes, which were received from organ donors, were "brought back to life."
Of course, the breakthrough isn't quite as remarkable as bringing a person back to life. However, it is a fascinating step forward for science.
Photosensitive neuron cells in the retina can respond to light up to five hours after death, according to the researchers.
They were also able to demonstrate that the eyes may communicate with each other even after death. The eyes were recorded sending signals that were similar to those sent by living patients' eyes.
This and other developments have raised the question of whether we can genuinely reverse death.
