Researchers 'reboot' pig brains hours after animals died

Thursday 17:15 GMT

The brains of decapitated pigs can be partially revived several hours after the animal has died, researchers have revealed, with some of the functions of cells booted back up when an oxygen-rich fluid is circulated through the organ.

Unlike pig brains that were left alone for 10 hours after death, the organs that had been hooked up to the BrainEx system for six hours had not decomposed, while their cells and neurons were apparently on a par or even in better condition than for pig brains analysed one hour after death.

Hellboy remake flops at US box office

Wednesday 12:40 GMT

The latest remake of Hellboy has failed to catch fire, mustering a mere $12m (£9m) at the US box office in its opening weekend.

Perhaps audiences really do listen to critics' reviews after all?". Den Of Geek's staff writer Rob Leane agreed, telling the BBC Del Toro's formidable shadow added to a "perfect storm of negative influences" dooming the remake to box office failure. "From the start, there have been segments of the character's fanbase that were disappointed that this reboot exists, given that director Guillermo del Toro and star Ron Perlman both expressed interest in coming back to make a third Hellboy movie in their already-existing franchise.
