    Head transplant doctors Xiaoping Ren and Sergio Canavero claim spinal cord progress

    Surgeons from China and Italy claimed that two studies published Wednesday add evidence to their ability to treat "irreversible" spinal-cord injuries and a related controversial aspiration to perform the world?s first human head transplant.


    Xiaoping Ren and Sergio Canavero said the new work they published in a scientific journal showed that monkeys and dogs were able to walk again after their spinal cords were "fully transected" during surgery and then put back together again. The neurosurgeons described the results as medically "unprecedented."

    I’m sure the first human organ transplants were also looked at the same way some of you look at this.

    There are people checking in here that consider having their heads cut off as "real" SCI research. I can't even count the threads over the years. I've lost track of all of them but here's a partial list from a couple years ago. Some of them are unreal.
