Apparently spinal cord repair is advancing to the state that human head transpants may soon be possible. A description of the surgical process is engrossing. A head transplant wouldn't be purely for entertainment value, it could be a powerful treatment for numerous diseases:
- Any non-brain cancer
- Various forms of muscular degeneration
- Traumatic non-head injuries
- Organ failure
In the near future it will be simpler to transplant a head than to transplant a heart and lungs.
