First-ever human head transplant is now possible, says neuroscientist

Technical barriers to grafting one personís head onto another   personís body can now be overcome, says Dr. Sergio Canavero, a member of   the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group. In a recent paper, Canavero outlines a procedure modeled on successful head transplants which have been carried out in animals since 1970.
The   one problem with these transplants was that scientists were unable to   connect the animalsí spinal cords to their donor bodies, leaving them   paralyzed below the point of transplant. But, says Canavero, recent   advances in re-connecting spinal cords that are surgically severed mean   that it should be technically feasible to do it in humans. (This is not   the same as restoring nervous system function to quadriplegics or other   victims of traumatic spinal cord injury.)

There is no such thing as ghosts. They are flying saucer aliens, using their cloak of invisibility to screw with our minds.

I guess it depends how you look at it, it could be called a body transplant too now couldn't it?   :*:
