A $100,000 prize is being offered to anyone who can successfully preserve a fully functional human brain.
The competition, which is being held by The Brain Preservation Foundation, requires that a human brain be kept in full working order for 100 years without sustaining damage or degradation.
The ultimate goal of the exercise will be to make it possible to bring someone back from the dead by transplanting their preserved brain in to a new synthetic body at some point in the future.
Participants are urged to begin by finding a way to preserve the brains of animals before eventually developing a surgical procedure that will enable the long-term preservation of a human brain. – See more at: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/news/291335/scientists-are-aiming-to-revive-a-human-brain#sthash.DaMYB5tr.dpuf
