It is a technology that has remained firmly in the realms of science fiction, but new research has provided hope for those hoping to be revived after being cryogenically frozen.
The study claims to have shown for the first time that memories formed before an animal has been frozen can survive intact after it has been thawed.
While the experiments were carried out in an organism with a somewhat simpler brain than humans – nematode worms – they answer an important question about the cryogenic process.
Overall there are not many creatures capable of being revived after being cryogenically frozen, and it has never been successfully achieved with any mammal.
However, if they could be reanimated, scientists have questioned whether the memory and personality of someone who had gone through the process would remain the same.
