    26 weeks until Head Transplant by Italian Surgeon

    I suspect it will be an abysmal failure with the subject never regaining a semblance of consciousness.

    I wouldn't click on the below link if you have a weak stomach *NSFW*

    Although a head transplant isn't something I would chose. I hope it becomes available for those that would.

    "Body transplant" seems more apt. I think, if they can ever figure out how to fix a transected spinal cord, body transplants would become a life saver.

    "Dr" Canavero looks like an irresponsible, nutcase Frankenstein. I feel sorry for this man who is undergoing his irresponsible experimental procedure, with cruel promises that it will cure his disability.

    The dog in the video was exhibiting many brain stem modulated reflexes; this does not prove sentient activity is intact. We often see such reflex activity (blinking to eye stimulus, lip smacking, teeth grinding, etc.) in people who are brain dead or in persistent coma.

    He still hasn't told anyone how is is going to make the cut spinal cord actual heal, much less reconnect to the donor's cord. If that were the case, it would be available already as a treatment for those with acute SCI.

    No doubt.

    This has been done with chimps, but it wasn't successful, and was quite cruel.

    I think it's something that could work, but after the spinal cord stuff gets sorted first.
