Significance of Rabbit Brain Reanimation in Aldehyde-Stabilized Cryopreservation
Care to explain why the rabbit brain reanimination in the Cryobiology journal article entitled "Aldehyde-stabilized cryopreservation" received the media attention it did in early 2016? Is it simply because of the new freezing technique? From what I could gather, the organ never actually perished (in the sense that function discontinued at room temperature for an inordinate amount of time.) In the case that the breakthrough is in the new freezing approach--well, that also seems like a bit of bad news since it implies that anyone who's been cryogenically preserved up until this discovery now has a brain considered to be in ruin.
Am I interpreting this research correctly?
