Had a strange but curious discussion/debate with someone today about how soon
after death does a person lose their reflexes. How long after your dead will
your knee still jerk, if it is tapped. A coke is riding on the answer, I said I
believe for 15+ minutes, he said reflexes stop at brain death. One further
question arises, if you are decapitated would you have any reflexes for any
lenght of time. Thanks
