Mad scientists. Reanimated pig brains. What could go wrong?

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/17/heal ... index.html
(CNN)A new experiment has raised medical and ethical questions as serious as those surrounding human gene editing: A support system delivering artificial blood to pig brains prevented degradation of important neural functions, Yale researchers discovered.
Dr. Nenad Sestan, senior author of the new study and a professor of neuroscience, noted that blood flow and some energy use could be seen in the dead brains, but the neural circuits showed no higher-level function, including the global electrical activity needed for awareness..

IIRC my zombie lore specifies that zombies who eat pig brains can pass for human.
You go 'round and around it
