10 Of The Strangest Animal Experiments Ever Conducted
Monkey Head Transplant
Robert White, an American scientist, wanted to perform the first “true head transplant.” To do this, however, he decided to use live monkeys in the operation. He removed the head from one, then transplanted it to the second.
German scientist Karl August Weinhold thought the human brain was much like a battery that could be wired. He wanted to prove his point, so he used a newborn kitten. The kitten lost all sensory functions, muscle movement, and eventually died. He then brought it back for just 20 minutes.
