Yes, many studies show that people are conscious to their suroundings for at least a couple hours after they are dead. Also according to many religions, this is correct. (This includes Christianity)

It's also scientifically proven that hearing is the last of the 5 senses to 'go' when a person is in the throes of death.

So, if a person is dying, talking to them does work, even if they can't talk back.
