Human head transplantation
Since the beginning of the 20th century, head transplantation (cephalosomatic anastomosis) has been studied in animal models including mice, rats and monkeys. A recently proposed protocol for head transplantation in humans has revived the interest for the procedure.

Ethical issues remain concerning the scientific validity of the proposed project as well as general concerns regarding the entire concept of human head transplantation.
