First Ever Live Human Brain Transplant ‘Imminent’ - Italian Surgeon


Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero said a full live human brain transplant could take place very soon during an interview from Vienna on Friday after claiming that Chinese surgeons led by Doctor XIaoping Ren successfully reconnected the muscles, nerves, and spinal column of a decapitated cadaver. Canavero made headlines two years ago when he announced that he wanted to transplant the head of Valery Spiridonov, a Russian tech scientist with Werdnig-Hoffman disease, onto a donor body.

  • Cat Parasite Linked To Common Human Brain Cancer

    The common parasite Toxoplasma gondii is spread to people through undercooked pork and occasionally domestic cats. Chronic T. gondii infections are linked to an increased risk of schizophrenia, lowered cognition, and behavioral changes like more risk-taking and aggression. Now, scientists say the parasite might have more insidious health effects than previously suspected. Gizmodo reports new research suggests a link between Toxoplasma gondii infection and an increased risk of gliomas, the most common form of brain cancer. The US sees 24,000 new cases of brain cancer annually, while 11% of Americans over age six carry T. gondii--upwards of 30 million people. So even if the connection is real, the chances of getting brain cancer as a result of chronic T. gondii infection are very low on an individual level.

  • Your Dog Loves You. Your Face? Not So Much

    Hungarian researchers want to reassure the human companions of dogs that they do care about you. However, they don't particularly care for your face. In fact, CNN reports dogs can't even distinguish the front of your head from the back of it. Instead, dogs use more information from smell or larger parts of the body to identify people. Despite lacking specialized neural machinery to process faces, dogs nevertheless excel at eye contact, following gaze, and reading emotions from faces. The researchers say that as dogs domesticated, they learned that reading facial cues meant survival, even though they lacked a specific region in the brain to do so.
