How long can you live after your head gets cut off?
and yeah this is a serious question

I think you would die instently why do you ask?

a few seconds.

I have heard that EEG's have been used to monitor people as they die - and that they continue to be able to hear for as long as 12 minutes after their cardiopulmonary functions cease.

It is therefore a kindness to continue to speak soothingly to people as and after they expire.

One would expect that the acuity of mental processes begin to diminish immediately upon cessation of oxygen supply to the brain and cease entirely varying as a function of the most recent oxygen supply and the specific brain's rate of consumption.

Now -- Samurai have believed that if the body was committed to an action, it can continue that one last action after the head is severed. I would suspect that this is largely inertia... that is - if the samurai was already charging, their body might make a few automatic steps but I doubt a headless body could perform any but the most basic motions.

I heard somewhere about 1.5 seconds.

4 years duhhh...no I'm joking but that would be cool!

Annie K
probably about 7 seconds
i know a cocoroach can like 5 days without its head

It depends what you define as "living"?

Becca P
well, i heard the eyes move for a bit...

i think for only 30 sec cuz i like cut off a insects head they wiggle around for e.g snakes i have seen lots of them head cut off they still move for a long time but i think i will die in seconds

You have a question...
near seconds,

What is alive? Brain activity? You're dead, your spinal cord is severed.

I would think that at the moment your head gets cut off, you are dead, your body may have involuntary nerve responses, but your dead.
And why in the world is this a serious question?

You've been watching one of those "Hallowe'en" movies, eh?
Did I ever tell you the story about "The Headless Conductor"?

i cant remember the exact amount of time but im pretty sure its only a few seconds before your brain shuts down

your nerves are instantly cut, if you thought about moving your hand up from your waist at the time, then strait after it was cut off, your arm, (by impulse of your brain) will move your arm up, and flop back down due to gravity, and no responses from your brain telling it what to do next, (due to head bieng not attached)

It's been about 20 years now....

The brain can survive only for a few seconds without oxygen. It's not like holding your breath because your heart is still pumping blood to your brain. No blood flow and you die in 10-15 seconds at most.

On the really bad guys, they used to reach in and grab the head out of the basket after they were chopped off and show them their body. The head would be "screaming" and trying to form words for several seconds before blood loss took effect and the brain died.

Of course, some would be in such shock that they would just faint before the head was removed.
