Human head transplant will be possible by 2030

A former neurosurgeon, who worked with the UK’s National Health Service claims human head transplants will become a reality by 2030. According to Dr Bruce Matthew, the revelation came to him while he was working on a science-fiction novel with futurist author Michal J Lee. He admits that the future process will be tricky because shifting the spinal cord intact is impossible..

The process will take a number of advancements and incremental steps but it will probably happen in the next 10 years. He says the feat will be accomplished with the help of cryogenics (freezing dead bodies in nitrogen), robotics, stem cell therapy and artificial intelligence.
