>>…If and when they become possible, I think they should be called body transplants as opposed to head transplants. If my doctor told me he wanted to attach a donor body to my head, I would consider it. If he wanted to attach a donor head to my body, I would definitely seek a second opinion.  Gordon

If we call it a head transplant instead of a body transplant then it is the only kind of transplant in which the recipient 
will never know of his good fortune. I can know that I received a new body, but I cannot know that I received a new head.
