Dean Pomerleau Posted September 13, 2015 Author Report Share Posted September 13, 2015 All, There is a great article in today's New York Times on the current state in cryonics and brain preservation, woven in with the story of a young woman dying of brain cancer with the intention of getting herself preserved at Alcor. It takes a hard look at the current limits and potential future advances in this area, including a pretty detailed side-bar on the four hurdles that will have to be overcome to recover the consciousness of a vitrified brain. It has a good overview of recent advances towards winning of the Brain Preservation Prize that we've talked about in this thread. Its an informative and poignant article that strikes very close to home for me. --Dean Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
