A three-year study will explore the nature of death and consciousness After countless accounts of near-death experiences, dating as far back as ancient Greece, science is now taking serious steps forward to explore the nature of the phenomenon. A new project aims to determine whether the experience is a physiological event or evidence that the human consciousness is far more complicated than we ever believed. EEG During Cardiac Arrest: The Human Consciousness Project sets out to explore the nature of human consciousness and the brain.
Home » Human Consciousness Project The Human Consciousness Project is an international consortium of multidisciplinary scientists and physicians who have joined forces to research the nature of consciousness and its relationship with the brain, as well as the neuronal processes that mediate and correspond to different facets of consciousness. The Human Consciousness Project SM will conduct the world’s first large-scale scientific study of what happens when we die and the relationship between mind and brain during clinical death. The Human Consciousness Project SM was successfully launched in September 2008 at a symposium held at the United Nations. The diverse expertise of the team ranges from cardiac arrest, near-death experiences, and neuroscience to neuroimaging, critical care, emergency medicine, immunology, molecular biology, mental health, and psychiatry.
Near-death experiences are tricks of the mind triggered by an overload of carbon dioxide in the bloodstream, a new study suggests.

Personal Accounts of near death experience. The experiences posted to this site are all the ones I received by email. I have not selected the "best" experiences or placed them in any order.
Back to NDE Page Does Ketamine Produce NDEs? Discussion of this topic can occur in the newsgroup alt.consciousness.near-death-exp It is possible that Ketamine HCL (Ketalar, Vetalar, Ketaset) can induce NDEs.
A near-death experience ( NDE ) refers to personal experiences associated with impending death , encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light. These phenomena are usually reported after an individual has been pronounced clinically dead or very close to death. Many NDE reports, however, originate from events that are not life-threatening. With recent developments in cardiac resuscitation techniques, the number of reported NDEs has increased. [ 1 ] The experiences have been described in medical journals as having the characteristics of hallucinations , [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] while parapsychologists , religious believers and some scientists have pointed to them as evidence of an afterlife and mind-body dualism .
