Factual errors 

During the experiments on the pig and the dog, it is stated that the Lazarus drug needs to be injected into their temporal lobes. However when they are trying to bring Zoe back the needle is in fact inserted into her frontal lobe. The temporal lobe on a human is farther back and lower.
