Caption: Head transplant. Illustration of a hypothetical future technique for transplanting heads between human bodies. The recipient and donor are shown connected to heart-lung machines (upper left). The heads are then surgically detached (upper right) and the donor head is attached to the new body (lower left). The inset at lower right shows the microsurgery used to re-attach nerves, blood vessels and structures such as the trachea and oesophagus.
