    An independent doctor is searching McMath's brain for any activity 11 days after physicians at Children's Hospital Oakland declared the 13-year-old girl brain dead following complications from a tonsillectomy.

    An Alameda County judge ordered the examination at the family's request, and that McMath be kept on a ventilator until at least Dec. 30. The teen's family says she responds to her mother's touch. The independent doctor's determination of Jahi McMath's status is expected tomorrow.

    KQED’s Mina Kim spoke with David Magnus, professor of pediatrics and director of the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics, about the case.
