What?! Ew! Creepy!! Scientist says he wants to put people's head's in new bodies! He claims to have a new technique that will allow for this to become a reality by cooling a body to avoid cell death so that the head, spine, and major blood vessels could be cut and transplanted.



Surgeon Sergio Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group in Italy, thinks he’s developed a new technique for head transplants that will avoid some of the problems caused by earlier attempts at such surgeries involving dogs and monkeys.

“In a paper published in Surgical Neurology International, he has outlined his technique: first, both the transplant head and the donor body would need to be cooled in order to slow cell death,” CNET explains. “Then, the neck of both would be cut and the major blood vessels linked with tubes. Finally, the spinal cords would be severed, with as clean a cut as possible.”


As I consider this as a possiblity I guess I can see this as a possibility for quadriplegics or others whom would need a working body. However, who's gonna give up their body for someone else? Dead people or maybe someone at or near a point of death...? Maybe but that opens a whole other set of issues. What says ATS?

Cybernetic bodies will be my choice.



A million times stronger and fully upgradable.

I remember reading about people who had hands from other people, and the psycological problems they had, if I remeber right some even demanded the hand be removed! So, how would it feel to have a whole body? Thats some serious sh!t they gotta deal with!

Yeah, I thought Exoskeletons were gonna be used for people with mobility issues. This has strange written all over it.

It's not strange if you want to clone a body and have a shell be the doner. Then insert your 100 year old aging brain into a new mechanized meat suit, Inject some embryonic stemcells and you've just extended life expectancy by a couple hundred years.

I think that's what they want right? Oh and also if they die they can just *Resurect them* as long as ( There is less cell Death)

Doesn't Elysium come to mind?

Maybe but then aren't you abusing life if you are creating a cloned life-form to be your new body....? This tech could be tied up in lawsuits so long from pro-life groups and other similar groups that it never really takes off. My 2 cents.

Well that should start a whole new black market in bodies. Will we see a huge rise in the disappearances of young able bodied people?

Grow new bodies from stem cells. If I were to have my brain transferred, I'd want it to be into my own rejuvenated meatsuit, and not someone else's body.

That's crazy.
So this dude can cut spinal cords and put them back together. I thought that would be some sort of medical achievement with a medal and stuff. Or has this been happening for awhile ?

I wonder if this only works using human body, or could I have my head put on a pig or giraffe body? Could male human head be attached to female human body? Fascinating but kinda creepy!

Reminds me of Brain operating Krang in Ninja Turtles.


Phantom limb or phantom pain may be a consequence of creating a Frankenstein.

I'm already on top of this.
In the process of cloning myself now.
The new body will be ready for the transplant when its about 18 years old and done growing to adult size.

Should be ready to attach my "self" to it in 17.5 years!

The first thing I'm going to do is go surfing!

Then maybe some marathon sex.

It has already been done on a monkey , I couldn't bear to watch it to see the progress or outcome. There are tons of monkey head transplant documentaries on youtube. If anyone wants to watch them and tell me if it is working out Id love to know but Im not watching that.

I am sure you would have to chase them for miles.

I do believe that the X-Files 2 movie addressed the morality of this.

IS will need to find a new method of execution.

I don't see what is evil or creepy about this. If someone is paralysed and another brain dead, then whats wrong with creating a functional human from the two bodies? One life is better than none surely? Then again most advancements are met with the same "its immoral and evil" arguments, but then become mainstream and unquestioned later with people taking them for granted.

Frankenstein was the doctor, his creation did not have a name.

Yes, liver transplants, hearts, kidneys, lungs, corneas, why stop there?

Ray Milland just hopes they pick some "body" other than Rosey Grier's:
