Futuristic Head Transplants?0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:53 pm


 

Imagine that you’ve just received the word that your body is no longer operational — you’re going to need a head transplant. What are you thinking? Are you swearing inside your brain?
 
An Italian neurosurgeon planned just that; conduct a human head transplant within two years. Experts say that the proposal is scientifically unreasonable. The idea is that the operation could extend the life of a person (theoretically) whose body is damaged or diseased by putting their head onto a donor body. The surgeon plans to achieve this by adjoining the spinal cords of the severed head and the new body.
 
Experts are definitely not convinced. 
 
Think about it. Researchers haven’t even been able to rejoin two parts of an injured person’s spinal cord. It’s quite astonishing to think that they could join two different spinal cords together as one. The idea and procedure behind it all would work like this: Sever the spinal cord of both a recipient and a donor. Then, fuse the recipient head and donor body together, giving the head a new body to inhabit. Quite sci-fi?
 
Therefore, I feel specifically terrible for the person (head) this is tested on. Is this too absurd to believe? Share your thoughts with us below.
