Looking into a brightly lit tunnel, leaving one’s body, looking back at one’s life – what some interpret as a sign of life after death, others consider to be merely a neurological phenomenon. What characterizes near-death experiences? What happens in our brain while we have them? And what remains of them afterwards? How does such an experience change our life? What place do we give to death in our lives?
