A brain transplant website! It sets itself up as a serious business with examples and prices. Very well done

It sounds very very odd...do you think this is real? I'm not sure, but maybe some researchers really had found a way to transfer brains into other bodies. Can you imagine it? I would like to live at least a life as a woman when I was an old man.

calm down dont get to excited!

but it's obviously fake

From: anonymous* , 182 months, post #4
Yeah, don't you think if this technology really existed, we'd be hearing a lot more abut it on the news?

From: Cobe* , 182 months, post #5
Even assuming for the sake of argument this was real, consider that the quoted price is $499,000... and the site states, "Prices subject to change without notice."

Anyone in this forum win the lottery recently?

(To be quite honest, if this were real, then THIS line would bother me:

"Because of the ethical aspects we do not discuss how and were we getting new human bodies for brain transplantation."

Oh, ethical aspects, huh?)

From: Lady Sekhmet* , 182 months, post #6
Actually, brain transplants have been successfully done on animals in the past. There's a rather famous series of experiments done in russia with dogs and monkeys. In one experiment a dogs severed head was kept alive for several days - it was awake and alert the whole time. Another was done transplanting a monkeys head onto another monkeys body (they shared the body). It too stayed alive for I believe 18 days.

Its pretty well accepted that brain transplants can be done - the downside is that there's no way to reconnect the spinal chord. So you end up in a new body that you can't control or feel. Not such a great thing.

Now, if they could figure out how to transplant only the temporal and frontal lobes we'd be good as gold. You get to stay "you" but you get all the motor and sensory control from the "donor". Sign me up! :)

>>"Because of the ethical aspects we do not discuss how and were we getting new human bodies for brain transplantation."

That's not a big problem since we're talking science fantasy here. Technically, by three years of age a human childs skull has reached its full size. So all you need to do is create a clone of yourself that has been altered to not grow a neocortex (and any other minor genetic changes you might also like - change of sex, blue eyes, tall, etc). Keep it (and I say "it" because its just a husk - no higher brain function) alive for three years and then transplant your brain into it. Since its a clone there is no problem with tissue rejection. Piece of cake.

Three years?!?! I'm all for getting the chance to grow up as a girl, but I'm not so keen as to have to deal with some of the aspects of being a child again. Having everybody treat you like a child; parents telling you what to do, what you can do, what you can't do; not being old enough (or big enough) to drive; not being able to make the decisions that you can, as an adult, make; etc., etc., etc. I might be willing to go for as young as 5 or 6... Oh well, it'd only be for 15 years at 3 years old - sign me up!

Think about this: You'd do really great in school the second time arround. You may even be Harvard material for sure.

From: cj* , 182 months, post #10
Hmmm... true. I'd be a prodigy, a child genius... but I think I'd much rather blend in. Of course, having easy homework (or none at all) would be a great benefit.

On the other hand, you might be getting senile by the time you get out of college...

From: des* , 182 months, post #12
if you keep your brain active then you can starve off being senile
however you will be an old grumpy cynical ass at a young age and that leads to one thing....... PROZAC

You dug up a five-year-old dead thread for.. what?

From: guest (Jayzie) , 78 months, post #16
Omg this is definitely a joke. Look at the website

From: Alias , 78 months, post #17
No, it's not a joke. They're hoping to find that one person in the world wealthy, gullible and desperate enough to buy into their scam. Hoping their awful web design, terrible grammar and ridiculous premise is overlooked by one person, the most gullible idiot in the world.

Alias, you made me LOL today!
