Modeling neuron death with real and simulated decapitations

Researchers used EEG to track brain activity after decapitation and engaged in some rampant speculation about what it all means. Now, another group of researchers has used modeling to shine some light on physical mechanisms to explain brain signals that occur during and after neuronal death.
