Today's Science Fiction....Tomorrow's Reality

An Italian neuroscientist claims he is ‘laying the groundwork’ for the first full human head transplant.

Dr. Sergio Canavero of the University of Turin believes advancing cell technology makes reconnecting the spinal cords possible, the breakthrough to a ‘successful’ transplant.

Dr Canavero’s paper, published in the open access journal Surgical Neurology International,  outlines a plan to cool the subjects’ head and spine then use clean cuts to severe the two spinal cords and drain the transplanted head of blood.

The two spinal cords would then be fused with an inorganic polymer glue and the heart of donor body ‘restarted’.

Doctors would have just one hour to reconnect the donor head, so that the brain is not starved of oxygen.

"It is my contention that the technology only now exists for such linkage". he writes.
 




So, who wants to go first??!



I guess, overall, it would be better than replacing each individual part like they did with Joan Rivers.
