In 1963, a group of scientists from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, led by Dr. Robert J. White, a neurosurgeon and a professor of neurological surgery, performed a highly controversial operation to transplant the head of one monkey onto another. The procedure was partly a success.
