Corrections:
Head Transplant: While the adhesive used in the head transplant procedure is novel, the procedure was a “dress rehearsal” for a live transplant.
Head Transplant: Robert J. White conducted the first successful monkey head transplant in 1970. The monkey was paralysed and lived for 9 days.
Japenese Human Meat: The original April Fool’s article was in English. A Spanish Spoof site later modified the story on July 12 to appear more like the story currently in circulation (see Snopes)
Dogs and Cats: The number of neurons are in the millions, not in the thousands, as stated in the podcast.
