Posted by cntransplant on Wednesday, May 24, 2017

When Sergio Canavero, an expert in neurosurgery from Italy, claiming that he would be able to transplant a human head in 2015, not least who despised him and thought he was making this up.

Canavero also is not considered serious when he claimed to have cut and reconnect the spinal cord of a dog, although less than a year later, he was to publish a paper detailing how he makes a bunch of the rats into two-headed.

Now, through the study of Canavero publlished in the journal CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics Volume 23 on June 14, 2017, announces that he has managed to sever the spinal cord from some rats and tying it back using a special mixture called as "glue".

To Newsweek, said that the indicated his latest Canavero is a leap forward toward the first human head transplant in the world. "Critics say that the spinal cord can not be restored so that the human head transplant was not possible, but the scan showed that the spinal cord turns out to be restored," he said.

For his experiment, using similar Canavero plastic called polyethylene glycol (PEG)to connected the spinal cord of the rat. The plastic is actually ever used by surgeons in a series of experiments conducted in 1930 's and 1940 's to connect to the spinal cord and makes it two-headed dog.
