  • Yes they've been planning it for a long time. I'm pretty sure it's on some programmer dude. It's gonna be super cool to see what happens.

  • when the head is chopped off you can still use your eyes to look around as long as there is enough blood in the head, this is just for a couple seconds though. if they can remove a head without it not losing too much blood it can work, but how will the nervous system be attached to the new body? i dont understand. how will this ever work?

  • Yup.

    It's gonna work, they've done head transplants since the 50s. Is it ethical? Unsure, but it will make lives better.

    What would really be amazing is if you could grow an e tire body out of stem cells with your DNA. That way when your current body gets damaged you can just swap it with a new one, with no tissue rejection.

  • I think it still my a bridge too far at the moment though I saw a scientist the other day coming up with a glue for severed spinal chords that apparently is seen as very promising.

  • Yeah, the scientific community except for that guy specifically says it won't work and he'll just be killing him via decapitation

      The difficult bit is going to be how to stop the body from rejecting the new head and vice versa , not to mention the spinal chord healing process.
      I think they've done test on rats and dogs , they SAY the new spinal chord fusing glue works but it's still not peer-reviewed as of today.
      Literally on the forefront of science we are.

  • As long as you can keep blood and oxygen to the brain It should be possible but i highly doubt they wouldn't be a paraplegic
