The idea of head transplant was first coined by Dr. Sergio Canavero of Italy. It was in 2013. After probably searching for a person in his right mind to volunteer, he finally found the “one.”
Canavero finally found a volunteer for his head transplant procedure in the person of Valery Spiridonov. Spiridonov, 30, has a rare genetic condition – a Werdnig-Hoffman disease. He is a computer scientist from Russia.
