Brain Transplant

I got a question for HLTV. Now, a brain transplant has never been done before on humans. But I've always thought about this question regarding it: Who would be the person to live on? a) the person who the brain belongs to b) the person who the brain gets put in to c) your own interpretation perhaps >this is obviously assuming that a consciousness is directly connected to the brain and will continue existing even if the brain would be placed elsewhere. little side note: brains are cool, wish we knew more about them!

it can't a different human brain literally cannot work with a given set of organs and imperfections in different humans because throughout its lifetime it's adapted and programmed itself to work a certain way for its native person besides, connecting a whole brain into a human isn't just screwing it into its place like a heart or liver transplant is

Im not saying it will be possible in the next year or two but at some point it will, maybe 100 years maybe 1000 i dont know but it will. Even 50 years ago most of the things we know now werent even imaginable

So you don't think in the future we won't be able to clone the person and transfer the brain into that new body?

True I think it would have to be grown to an adult too though. Obviously if you created a clone and it hadnt full grown the brain would not be to size however this also means the possibility of developing genetic issues. Lets say you have the gene for something but it never matured that doesnt mean the clone wont have it mature ect. If im correct. Super cool concept and I think if a clone was made with an identical body then yes the brain could be transferred at some point in the future

I suspect it would make zero difference. Just like detaching the brain from a person and trying to plug it in again. You die and that's it.

I don’t know about medical stuff rlly but I do about geography and that field… and I thought it worked like mechanical erosion , there water freezes which makes it expand and then when it cools it becomes fluid again which causes damage or erosion.

The memories, knowledge, consciousness would all stem from the brain, therefore I'd confidently say option A

Your body doesn't make huge changes in one day and always have same genes I never said they'd become a different person just that new body would affect the brain

I think the person that would live on would be the brain that gets put into the body. I don't see why personality and other character traits would be tied to other parts of the body besides the brain

I think it's obvious that the person to live on would be the person who the brain belongs to.
2021-07-28 00:21
ez question! its clear that the person to live on would be the person who got the new brain but only the body would be the same the consciousness and all the brain connections and memories would be from the person who gave the brain. That would make the human being fkd up in a way, because it would have a lot of memories but when the person look at the mirror he/she wouldnt reconize itself
2021-07-28 00:29
no brain no pain
2021-07-28 00:41
It would be the original owner of the brain for the most part as theoretically your memories and stuff are made from synaptic connections in the brain.

Im almost 100% sure that it would be the person which brain was transplated since we are brains, you can cut hand or exchange heart, basically you can swap any organ and its still you (only your immune system sometimes fs up and doesn't want that new organ but only after you would take out brain or swap it for another thats when you stop being you, your body doesnt have a secondary hard drive to save your memories etc in basically we have only one hard disk

Who knows,hltv mens)) should find out
2021-07-28 03:41
A As memories, personality, character, are all in the brain. No other organ has the ability to withhold any "data" for lack of a better word Ofc this is my view and not solid fact.
2021-07-28 03:53
brain is all conected to your body through specific cells... so body and brain is something that only works together... thats why its not possible yet to do such thing... so your question is kind of non sense

2021-07-28 04:19
It wouldn't be a brain transplant, so much as a full body transplant.
2021-07-28 04:20
i would think most definitely A the body is just a housing to keep the brain running, which is why it is so common for people to neglect the health of their body for the 'health' of their brain (eating tasty food when you are already in an excess of calories, being sedentary for long periods of time on the Internet, etc) i assume a transplant of this kind will never be possible on humans though
2021-07-28 04:36
Ofc the Person of the brain
2021-07-28 05:21
a but brain transplants will never become a reality. the best we might be able to do is to upload our brains into a machine or some shit, but transplanting an entire brain into an entirely different body will never happen

yeah by the time we come up with brain transplants we will have the tech to make organic/inorganic body 'shells' for the brains to go in. and even further on we might have that 'upload brain to pc with RTX 3090' shit.

A heart transplant exists. Sometimes the person ends up with a different personality after and even have certain memories from the other person. So maybe you’d be a mix of both people.
