Caption: Robert White. Portrait of the American neurosurgeon, Robert J. White, a proposer of head transplants. It is now possible to carry out a human head transplant, joining a patient's head onto the body of a donor. However, as the resulting body would be paralysed, this procedure is only likely to be carried out in life- threatening cases such as inoperable cancer. White has developed the White Operation. During this, the brain would be cooled to 10 degrees Celsius, extending the time it can survive after detachment from the body from a few minutes to an hour. White is a surgeon at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
