Discuss the Physiology of Zombies

Zombie humans don’t exist, yet we all seem to know how they work. They stumble around in crowds bleeding from open sores on their skin, they are badly dressed, they don’t talk but are able to see and distinguish us (living humans) from them. They pass on the Zombie infection (virus/bacteria/prion/brain worms) by biting people, are strong, seemingly able to tear people open in order to feed on them, are persistent but are “killed” by severing the head from the body etc, etc. What are the characteristics of Zombies? Are there different types of zombies? (Fast zombies/slow zombies). Explain what has gone wrong with their physiology in order to produce the observed behaviours. Eschew “magical” or unscientific explanations, rather consider that zombie behaviour is constrained by the physiological characteristics of human anatomy and physiology and discuss what is not working and so would result in their characteristic behaviours. (Use your critical faculties scientifically. Do not cut and paste material from the internet – it is mostly nonsense)
