Human Head Transplant Just 2 Years Away, Surgeon Claims

This has to be the creepiest story of the week. An Italian Neurologist, Dr. Sergio Canavero has outlined his head transplant procedure in a medical paper submitted to the Surgical Neurology International. The paper outlines the techniques and the prognosis for a full recovery within a year. The good doctor is looking for a few good test subjects if you are interested in getting ahead. big grin

And that's all without even taking into account the ethical considerations: in order to have the best chance of success, the donor body has to be still technically living. This also means that donor bodies -- even if the procedure could be approved -- would be in very short supply. Unsurprisingly, the concept leaves many uncomfortable.
