It's called the lazarus sign and is quite common in traumatic brain injury patients once the criteria for brain death is met. Not bragging, but I know this because I am a neurosurgeon at Virginia Tech

I've got a friend that used to attend. Do you have a decent memory of your students by any chance...or do you only work in the hospital?

Yeah, depending on the student, if they made a good impression they are easily remembered. Also, if they are interested in the field it helps, but like most of medical school you are required to do rotations in areas that you don't like and some students let that attitude show through

I've seen a similar reaction in decapitation videos, when the head is nearly cut and they hit the bone that connects the spine to the skull with a machete the same movement happens to the victim's arms.

Stop hitting yourself. Why are you hitting yourself?
