As a person of Islamic faith we always had our own stories and versions of what happens after death, and the process of death and experience is quite detailed in our Islamic texts. However it's always exciting when you hear about scientific stories that resemble some sort of support into any faith stories. I once read that for a long time, doctors and scientists thought that the brain was the last organ to die/perish during the process of dying. However new information and medical research proved that the ear was the last of the body's senses to go. I remember at the time, this was amazing breakthrough for people who felt they still needed to tell their loved ones how much they loved them, or anything else they never had the chance to say. This information opened up that door, for closure. I think closure is an important thing to have, for a loved one watching another loved one pass away.
