Taghibernate

two separate studies from Harvard and RIKEN researchers identify neurons capable of inducing hibernation-like states in mice when they are stimulated. The team states their findings point to the possibility of inducing torpor in humans which could have ramifications for brain injury prevention during a stroke, increasing survival rates for heart failure in the ER due to serious trauma or enabling new treatments for metabolic diseases, as well as developing stasis techniques for trips to Mars.

Two separate studies identify & activate neurons in mice to induce hibernation, hinting at suspended animation in humans.

The core body temperature of a mammal is highly controlled being maintained at roughly 37° C throughout life. However, a short supply of food can cause some mammals to enter a … Continue Reading Two separate studies identify & activate neurons in mice to induce hibernation, hinting at suspended animation in humans.
