Because it is not so dependent on blood flow and tons of brain activity. It is a small system and works independently of other systems, other than the nervous system and cardiovascular system.

Hearing is believed to be the last sense to be lost before death. You can talk to a dying person as if each of your words can be heard. Therefore, do not talk over the person pretending that he is not there because they can still every word that you are saying.
