Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero (Sergio Canavero), known for his plans to transplant the head to a living person, is going to provide people with immortality.
According to Kanavero, he launches a new phase of his project – BRAVE (Вrain anastomosis venture), within which the first transplant of the human brain will take place. The scientist believes that this will allow people to become immortal, because, unlike head transplants, a young body can rejuvenate old nerve cells without a risk to the immune system. The operation should be carried out in 3-5 years.
Kanavero hopes to get ahead of the Russian specialists who are involved in the Avatar project and expect to transplant the human brain into an artificial body. The Italian surgeon also complained about the ignorance of the Americans, who were skeptical of his plans, and praised the Chinese, who gave him the title of professor and funded his research.
In addition, the scientist said that he maintains good relations with the programmer Valery Spiridonov, who was the first candidate for a head transplant, but still will not be operated on. "He always remains in my heart, and I am ready to help, but the problem is money," the surgeon emphasized. According to him, the operation will be carried out if it is financed by the Russian side.
Canavero also believes that changing bodies will allow people to make interstellar travel and quickly adapt to conditions on other planets.
