For sure "Usher" and "Berenice". The undead, the seeming dead "The Sleeper" and those who return "Morella" and "Ligeia" show there is a larger theme at work inclusive of this scientific preoccupation. Also Poe had interrupted heartbeats at least once when sick so his alcoholism or other illness made his personal experience of this important to some of his works.
