Controversial Italian doctor Sergio Canavero, who is planning on the first head transplant in under a year (which looks entirely possible), wants to "begin trials on brain transplants." Reportedly, cryogenically frozen brains could be "woken up" after being placed in a new body.

"The brain is, in a manner of speaking, a neutral organ. If you transplant a head with vessels, nerves, tendons and muscles, rejection can pose a massive problem. This is not the case with the brain."

However Prof Canavero admitted that there could be physical and psychological problems which come with putting a brain in an entirely different body.

"What many be problematic, is that no aspect of your original external body remains the same. Your head is no longer there; your brain is transplanted into an entirely different skull.
