Head Transplantation (English Edition) Kindle版
Ever since Mary Shelley's novel, Frankestein (1818), the possibility of giving man a new body has ignited human fantasy. This possibility turned into reality in 1970, when neurosurgeon Robert White carried out the first head transplantation in a living animal. But the result was only partial, as the spinal cord could not be reconnected.Now, in the XXI century, that obstacle has been removed. Dr Sergio Canavero shook the world in 2013 with the HEAVEN head transplantation project. Thanks to a spinal cord fusion protocol of novel conception (GEMINI), the race is on to perform the first head transplantation in man. And one day -thanks to cloning- make you...immortal!
