Sounds like a good platform for testing brain-computer (or neural-computer in general) interfaces. With the option to eat the test platform afterwards.
Do you really want to eat a pig that died of neural sclerosis, or glioma?
I am not aware of any factor that could cause cross-species (or even intra-species) transfer of these conditions; prions aren’t involved either. Nor it seems to me like liable to affect the quality of meat.
I dunno. If we’re really doing science here, shouldn’t we pickle our subjects, in case we need to go back and look at exactly what went wrong after further research?
There are practical considerations, aka the storage space and the liquid nitrogen needed for keeping some kinds of samples. I’d suggest to keep the most important samples and document all that can be documented (digital data are easy to store). The rest can be disposed of. Mmmmm, bacon!
Basically simulate a farm collie’s brain then?
