Attach two bolts to the neck

Use lightning rod to harness electricity.

The complte protocol being in Shelley, M. (1818) The modern Prometheus .

But on topic, when a cell is dead, it is usually not reversible and damages are often quick to appear. So short of mith jokes. I do not really think that your research is going to go very far.

You might research cryoreanimation but it's hard to say whether the frozen specimen is really "dead".

Depends on your definition of bringing a dead person back to life. After 8 minutes of death (unless lowered temperatures are involved), the damage to the brain is simply irreversible.

You might want to look into Apoptosis vs Necrosis. One might be able to reverse the apoptosis cycle in a cell, but necrosis is pretty much irreversible and, once apoptosis has past a certain point, the damage done is also irreversible.

As for cryogenically frozen people, that's pretty much out right now as well, since freezing causes ice crystals to form in the cells, rupturing their membranes. Until we can come up with a solution (something to mix in the plasma that raises the freezing point and isn't toxic) to the ice crystals, you can pretty much forget reanimating those. (In other words, don't expect Walt Disney to be coming back to life, EVER).
