Russia: Meet HEAD TRANSPLANT volunteer Valeri Spiridonov


Russian computer scientist Valeri Spiridonov is set to undergo the world's first full head transplant, with the 30-year-old expressing hope of "success" in a pioneering operation he has deemed similar in importance to space travel while speaking in Moscow, Thursday. Valeri Spiridonov (in Russian): "This technology is similar to the first man to walk in space. This is because in the future it will help thousands of people who are in an even more deplorable state than I am." Valeri Spiridonov (in Russian): "We're experimenting, which lead to a relatively successful transplantation of the body, but then it was not possible to transmit nerve activity in organs and limbs. In that operation it did not have a meaning. Canavero overcame this problem. He has technology that allows the merging of neurons. And it works. We hope that this technology will lead to success." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To use this footage please contact the Ruptly Client Desk: cd@ruptly.tv Video ID: 20150409-090 ---------------------------------- Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ruptly VK: https://vk.com/ruptlytv Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Ruptly LiveLeak: http://www.liveleak.com/c/Ruptly Vine: https://vine.co/Ruptly Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/Ruptly Google Plus: http://google.com/+RuptlyTV YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/RuptlyTV DailyMotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/ruptly Video on Demand: http://www.ruptly.tv
