Science FTW

Yes and no. Technically, as a juror, you’re just supposed to consider the evidence presented at trial and the laws as they are written. However, you are also allowed to follow your conscience, and there’s nothing preventing you from deciding that you just don’t believe the prosecution’s expert witness. For whatever reason. You don’t really have to explain yourself. Also, as you may be aware, jury nullification is a real thing, and it is legal. And in the situation you are describing, that is essentially what you would be engaging in.

Braintini, anyone?

Not to nag around - this is quite a promising step and very interesting - but not killing a little clump of something that is technically brain tissue in a freeze/thaw cycle is still a long, long, long way from reanimating an actual, frozen brain with the information in it intact. Which kinda is the whole point.
Don’t book a personal space in a cryogenics facility just yet, folks.
