      There are doing straight cuts of the spinal cord of the two sides using a diamond blade (head & body), then aligning them and using PEG to 'glue' the two spinal cords together. Then allow the axons to reconnect. The head surgeon calls it the 'Gemini' protocol. The clean spinal cord cuts avoids glial scars & injury site that a contusion injury creates.

        Why would a brain dead person be concerned about their glia scar?

          Presumably they want longitudally aligned axons on both ends, like straight wires, to mate together well. No kinks (glial scars, injury sites) to disrupt the flow.

            Every brain dead person should have that on their bucket list.

                    "May never be" seems a bit strong. Science and technology seem to be ever forward marching (economic and political conditions permitting).

                    In my mind it would have to be a very dystopian future where we couldn't EVENTUALLY transplant a head. I mean I think we will be able to build a human from scratch out of nonbiologic materials before that will happen and I think it may always be cost prohibitive, but I'd hope that one day thousands of years from now humans are still around and doing okay and capable of this (even though the advance of science will likely render it irrelevant, why not fix the body or grow a new one rather than use some dead... or why let someone die just so you can use their body to transplant onto someone elses head).

                    I certainly don't think it will be anything feasible in the next 500 years or so, though.

                      Here are some worthy classics kept alive over the years in the cure forum (for those awaiting a head transplant).
