I thought they had worked out that when starting to die, ie being starved of oxygen, the brain goes into overdrive, ie works really hard to try to figure out how to recover while it may still have a chance.

This has been observed in mice, killed under a scanner - there is a massive spike in brain activity as it starts to suffocate. (I read this recently, might have been in Scientific American - but not sure)

It's possible the NDE is a memory of this overclocking of the brain.
