Head transplant doctors post proof they can reattach spinal cord to donated body
Xiaoping Ren and Sergio Canavero said the new work they published in a scientific journal showed that monkeys and dogs were able to walk again after their spinal cords were "fully transected" during surgery and then put back together again. The neurosurgeons described the results as medically "unprecedented."

You simply cannot know or expect to know the 1,000,000 plus connections that would have to be reconnected from a severed head and reconnected to a human torso. Yes through intense spinal therapy we have re-established some series of spinal connections in damaged spinal cord injuries in the lower waist area and created NEW connections to give some limbs moving again but this type of rehab has taken years to implement and perfect with patients and it has NEVER been done with completely severed spinal cord injuries.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

I suspect the Flat Earth, Never Mooners and "No Thrust in Space" crowds
will be the only people to buy into this crap.

The complexities of the central nervous system and the tens of millions of
neural interconnections alone make this an impossible task.

Their efforts should start with the eyes.

When they can successfully reconnect a severed optic nerve to the point
that sight is restored, then the goal of attaching a head might be within
a faint realm of possibility for a sci-fi novel.

It just ain't gonna happen in real life.


[ The fact that this is coming out of China, and that it is being
reported by the Lame Stream press, should immediately throw red
flags in most people's brains. ]

This means that they should be able to repair spinal cord injuries. Many people are unable to function due to spinal cord injuries. This could be the greatest advance in trauma medicine in decades, or it could be more bull-shit.

Re: Head transplant doctors post proof they can reattach spinal cord to donated body
Here is some interesting spinal injury treatment I have have been researching using HupA.

Alleviation of chronic pain following rat spinal cord compression injury with multimodal actions of huperzine A.

Neuropathic pain, one of the most debilitating sequelae of neurotrauma, is an unmet clinical need for at least 40% of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). We demonstrate that [-]-huperzine A (HUP-A), a naturally occurring Lycopodium alkaloid isolated from the Chinese club moss, Huperzia serrata, with potent reversible inhibitory action on acetylcholinesterase and N-methyl-d-aspartate glutamate receptors, offers an exceptional prospect for multimodal treatment of SCI-induced neuropathic pain in rats. HUP-A restores homeostasis of central sensory neurocircuitry without invoking drug tolerance and dependence or respiratory suppression. We therefore conclude that multimodal actions provide a fresh translational approach to reduce chronic pain.

i guess what isn't bullshit is they are actually doing these experiments on dogs, monkeys, etc etc. probably humans, they are stealing kids organs, i'm pretty sure they would do it

this is why morality matters. not just getting punished for these things but teaching children not to want to do these things

If it's true, which I have doubts about too, then why don't they start giving people the use of their limbs who have spinal cord injuries and help them walk again???

Why would they just want to put a head on a body and not approach this end of the medical industry?

 Quoting: 1guynAz


Because they are going to do it with clinically brain dead bodies and a donor who has just died, both donors.
They have to be able to prove that it's physically possible with dead donors, and perfect the procedure, before operating on living humans, that part seems logical.
This has not yet been done on humans, and would never be able to be done on humans if China didn't allow this.

As much as I do find this ethically dubious, but then again the patients are donors.
China is going to become the forefront of technology very very very quickly because they are willing to break ethical boundaries, well they have next to none.
And it is true without breaking these ethical boundaries I do see it being very complicated for anyone to be able to fix paraplegic patients and all that in this particular case

They transplanted a monkey head way back in the day. There is a video about it somewhere. I believed the ape lived about 2 days after the transplant.
