First-ever scan of a dying human brain reveals life may actually ‘flash before your eyes’

After an elderly patient died suddenly during a routine test, scientists inadvertently collected unique data about activity in his brain at the very end of his life: During the 30 seconds before and after the man went into cardiac arrest, his brainwaves were remarkably similar to those observed during dreaming, reminder recall and meditation, suggesting that people actually see their life “flash before their eyes” when they die.

The phenomenon of past memories repeating themselves when one dies has been reported by some people who have had near-death experiences. But this is the first scientific evidence that this “flash” could be real. However, as this is the only case study, it is impossible to make any further assumptions about how common the phenomenon is or what the experience might be like.
