comment Is brain transplantation possible?
@ChrisStronks Now I think it's too broad, unfortunately. There's a laundry list of assumptions that have to be built into any answer, and so narrowing it down to whether one would want the CNS to be functional, be able to vascularize itself, or to maintain histocompatibility would be helpful, but even bearing that narrowing of the question, this is still really a fanciful idea.
