There is no way, that the head wont be rejected
eventually.

Fuck, what would that even feel like, would you even be lucid or just a drooling, seizing sin against nature?

They didn't even attach the spine. I'm pretty sure during the fetal stage every individual develops a unique nervous system.

Good luck trying to pair two different nervous systems.

This is absolutely horrifying.

"Fusing the spinal cord of a person is going to be key to successfully transplanting a human head onto a donor body. The scientists claim that they have been able to do so by cleanly cutting the cord and using polyethylene glycol (PEG), which can be used to preserve cell membranes and helps the connection recover.

Probably far from anything you could call conscious, I can't imagine it being anything besides a vegetable only barely being kept alive.

I don't give a fuck until I can get a fully prosthetic body like Ghost in the Shell

I don't think being sewn onto other human bodies would be the most popular way to go about it in the future. Instead I think this is going to lead to some serious cyborg shit

ghost in the shell will be considered kid's trash within the next year.

on topic though, I agree.

This. Neurons communicate by shooting jets of calcium, sodium and potassium at each other - electrically shocking them induces this behavior as well. This is called an 'Action potential,' and can induce more action potentials in a long chain. In this way, electrical stimulation can effect neurons it isn't directly connected to.

Graphene in general is highly conductive, as well as biologically compatible. It could be used to stimulate neurons. Not only that, these graphene nerves could be two-way - that is, activating more graphene nerves when stimulated by an electrical impulse from a neuron.

The other big thing is that graphene is lighter and stronger than any other available material. It also has many other features too numerous to name.

so this has been done before but with dogs but if i recall they cant have the animal survive longer then a week or so without the body turning on itself... granted we can breed people with different blood types soo this is a possibility.... but i dont see the purpose at all unless you wish to make hybrids of animal humans.

Bullshit. Why the fuck did they do that? They didn't even wait to see if it really worked.

I don't like that they're testing this shit out on animals but it needs to happen if we ever want to have that glorious dystopian cyberpunk future.
