Looks Like A Brain Transplant Has Already Happened

| OH, USA | Learning | November 5, 2014

(We are in an all-school assembly, listening to a speaker talk about organ and tissue donation. A freshman raises her hand.)

Speaker: “Yes, you there.”

Student: “So, if you get a brain transplant, do you, like, have the other person’s thoughts?”

Speaker: *obviously trying to gauge the seriousness of the asker* “Um, no.”

Student: *in all honesty* “Why not?”

Speaker: *trying to keep a straight face* “Because brain transplants aren’t something we have learned how to do. You cannot donate your brain; you cannot receive someone else’s brain.”

Student: “Oh.”
