First human head transplant may be just a decade away, neurosurgeon says

Bruce Mathew, Neurosurgeon, says there is a plausible way to move the consciousness of one person to another body, and that recent advancements in robotics, stem cell transplants, and nerve surgery now make the prospect achievable within the next decade.

Italian professor Sergio Canavero is also currently working on the world’s first head transplant, but his method involves severing the head from the spinal column and reattaching it to a donor body. But Mathew said it would be far more effective to take the whole head and spinal cord as a single entity, and replace it in a donor body.
