wtf did I just see... I'd rather not.... Jesus

Sounds like an awesome cure for obecity too. Put the person into hibernation prevents him from stuffing crap into his face, all while burning pure fat in stead of carbs :-P

Автор Christopher Hereford ( назад)
What about using hibernation more for people that don't need to worry about as many blood clots because of cybernetic replacements. You just replace several body parts with mechanical body parts that don't rely on biological necessities like blood, muscles, or bones.

is coma is short of hibernate ??

$100,000 TO BE PUT INTO HYBERNATION FOR 30 DAYS.    Human hibernation would be a massive scientific, even medical breakthrough.  If it does become possible someday, they will need to find some "human guini pig" volunteers to experiment it on.  And of course, to entice people to subject themselves to a questionable experiment, they would need to be offered attractive compensation. 
  So, WHAT IF scientists do find a way someday?  Would YOU volunteer to be put into hibernation for a month if offered $100,000?   Me, I think I would.  The money would pay off just about everything, and I'd be part of a huge scientific breakthrough.

humans can hibernate, its called coma

Don't you need a sus-an membrane to be able to hibernate?

Olivia is getting better at this. I absorbed a fair amount of the content in one sitting, quite enjoyed the video. Maybe chill on the hand movement a little as it's a tiny bit distracting, otherwise good work. Also pace your speech a little - think James T Kirk, and how he makes mundane things intriguing with pacing and spacing :)

humans should be able to hibernate. Our lifestyles just don't permit us to do so.

Hydrogen sulfide and it's analogs aren't the only triggers for hibernation being researched, there's also an opiate and a peptide being investigated plus simply reducing the core body temperature is a trigger.

Автор Adam X ( назад)
What causes muscle and bone density loss though? Would those processes also be slowed down by hibernating?

Автор Freeman ( назад)
What about aging? How is it affected?

There's a legend in my place about a hermit who meditate in remote cave for years. So long that he meditate, mold and limestone covered his body until he can no longer be distinguishable from a rock around him. As usual, a disciplined mind can achieve many unbelievable feat.

Автор snowdaysrule2 ( назад)
Ohh this was a good one! I liked how the video presented some super awesome [and totally random :)] facts like about the arctic ground squirrel, yet at the same time also discussed some real-life, ACTUAL benefits of hibernation for humans like being able to reduce car crash fatalities. New random facts to keep me entertained, and practical knowledge to give the video some definite purpose. Perfect!

4:51 - muscle loss in space may also be slowed down if we are in hibernation.

Автор Armchair ( назад)
Maybe we could solve the long term hibernation problems by not doing it,imo it would be a better idea to hibernate for 8 hours or so,than wake up,do a bit of exercise and stretching,than going back to hibernation.

Sure it wouldnt be as effective and resurce saving like hibernating for months at a time,but it would still help a lot.

I wouldn't mind going into suspended animation until the human race gets its act together and people like Donald Trump are gone.

Not to forget that this could eventually also lead to beeing able to (re)grow additional limbs at will.
"Woah, i would need like 3 extra arms for this hsit, ill be back in about 2 months."

So if you eat a lot of eggs and seal yourself into a big glass tube, do you hibernate or put yourself to sleep another way?

Now if only the researchers could find a way to stop my co-workers from hibernating 9-5 weekdays.

Reminds me of therapeutic hypothermia used in critical care units. Slows oxygen consumption and can blunt end organ damage from shock.

How can the arctic squirrels temp drop below 0 and not kill them? At what point does their blood just freeze?

SciShow is losing some respect form me.
97% of our genes are shared with a lemur?
That is a ridiculous statement and VERY misleading.
Like, we share 50% DNA with Bananas but that doesn't mean anything in THIS context, we are not going to turn into one or behave like one any time soon.
Black and White people are MORE than 99% similar, but people will still kill about the fact that they are DIFFERENT.

Автор Benjie Wolicki ( назад)
You seem to have a problem with terminology here. You refer to all extended periods of suspended activity as "hibernation". Hibernation refers specifically to this activity (or lack thereof) during the winter. The "Hiber" part of the word indicates winter. If this occurs during the summer, such as with the lemurs you talk about, it's called "estivation".

I am unhappy. the video gets to the fat tailed lemurs and seizes up. there have been other videos on YouTube that have done this. I was really looking forward to seeing this one.

I once read a story where a species that did not use machines collected humans and put them in supsended animation for centuries using modified carnivorous plants that moved and rotated human bodies. The book describes the sole human awake as noticing an odor when she was shown one these plants. Interesting.
