Someone emailed me to ask about a study in which the brains of dying rats showed a burst of activity. The question was: What implications, if any, does this have for NDEs?
I gave a general answer, but also forwarded the email to Chris Carter, because my email correspondent had asked me to. Chris replied to me with a copy of a letter by Bruce Greyson, Edward F. Kelly, and W.J. Ross Dunseath, which was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the same journal that published the original study.
Doing a little Web browsing, I also found a reply to the Greyson et al.'s letter from the researchers responsible for the study.
Rather than excerpting choice bits from the two letters, both of which are quite short, I've just linked to them (above) for those who are interested.
The full text of the (highly technical) original study is also online.
