Soviet Experiments in the Revival of Dead Organisms

An experimental medical procedure breathes life into a severed dog head in this 1940 film Soviet documentary.

Experiments in the Revival of Organisms is a 1940 film documenting Soviet research into the resuscitation of clinically dead tissue.

The film shows the use of a heart-lung apparatus called the autojektor to revive a heart, a lung, and a severed dog head. It then shows a severed dog head connected to the machine, and it seems to be alive. After that, a dog is slowly brought to clinical death by draining its blood, and then revived.

According to the film, the dog recovered and continued to live a healthy life.

The film states that several dogs were resuscitated in the same way, including one which was the offspring of parents who were both also resuscitated.

British scientist J. B. S. Haldane appears in the film’s introduction and narrates. The operations are credited to doctors Boris Levinskovsky and Sergei S. Bryukhonenko.

Alexander Graham Bell’s Dead Ear Phonautograph

An invention by Alexander Graham Bell to record sound using a human earIn 1874 Alexander Graham Bell created his version of a phonautograph using the ear and part of a skull of a dead man obtained by an associate. Bell attached a recording stylus to the ear to inscribe a line on a smoked-glass plate. When he shouted into the dead man’s ear, the stylus recorded his speech on the glass.

A mouthpiece funneled the sound of Bell’s voice to an eardrum from a dead body. His voice created sound waves that caused the inner ear bones to vibrate. A piece of straw – attached at one end to the bones – traced the pattern of the vibrations onto a charcoal-coated glass plate moving under the straw’s tip. The straw’s tracings recorded each sound as a series of waves. As Bell’s voice changed pitch, the speed of vibrations changed and so did the pattern’s shape.

Bell originally thought his machine might help deaf students learn to speak by allowing them to match the tracings of their spoken words to those made by people who could hear. The idea for the telephone came from his realization that if you could use sound to get an electrical current to vibrate – just like the piece of straw – then you could send speech as far and fast as electricity could travel.
