At a press conference in Vienna on Friday morning, Italian Professor Sergio Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, announced that a team at Harbin Medical University had "realised the first human head transplant" and said an operation on a live human will take place "imminently".

The operation was carried out by a team led by Dr Xiaoping Ren, who last year successfully grafted a head onto the body of a monkey.

Prof Canavero, said: "The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done. A full head swap between brain dead organ donors is the next stage.

Of course, the patient wasn't a corpse at the beginning of the operation. But other than that, the procedure was a success.

So before long it will be common practice to put 80 year-old heads on 20 year-old donor bodies.

What would this person's age be?

Would they lose their Social Security? Or be able to keep it for another 60 or more years?

Could the remaining live head/body combo choose which identity to keep?

The really interesting questions start when you can combine brain halfs from different people.
