The scientist who transplanted monkey heads


#1

[Read the post]


#2

Dr. Sergio Canavero’s plan to perform the first human head transplant

Wouldn’t that actually be a body transplant?


#3

Interesting documentary, but I’ll be damned if the soundtrack didn’t make it sound like a Faces of Death flick.


#4

So in terms of predicting future technology, do we give the credit on this one to the Star Trek episode “Spock’s Brain” or to Frankenstein?


#5

Which came first? Monkey head transplants or monkey ass transplants:


#6

Warning: this video is rather graphic.

@crenquis, this does NOT translate into a request for animated gifs of said video.

BTW, you’re not Icky Bob, are you?


#7

You can call me Ichy Bob, big boy.


#8

Apparently, it’s easy for people to forget that all videos are “graphic”.


#9

Eyeroll.


#10

Eyerolls too can be graphic.


#11

Mmmm, when par-boiled like that they give the most satisfying Pop when one bites down!


#12

I’d take a head transplant. That’s some seriously awesome retro science fiction come to life. It’s definitely a better sounding future than bowing down to my robot overlords. Does medicaid cover the procedure?


#13

So I’m thinking…eyes can blink and the mouth can bite because those nerve pathways stem from the top of the spinal cord, but what about the body from the neck down?


#14

That is the one problem with the procedure right now, the person or animal whose head is transplanted kinda become paralyzed from the neck down.


#15

“neck graft”


#16

Yeesh a disembodied, living brain. What sensations would you feel? Would it just be intense pain? Is there any consciousness?

Truly the stuff of nightmares. The blackest.
