    That's why I'm donating my body to science, I'll get my hover car and bionic body one day...

    Wouldn't CBT and GET be just as effective?

    This was my plan too, but the UK doesn't accept body donations from people with unexplained neurological diseases.
    Very disappointed.

    Call me 'high maintenance', but I am definately stating a preference for medical help BEFORE I've popped my clogs!

    Surely it depends on how "recovery" is defined?

    It's the perfect 'trial' for CBT and GET- if the patients didn't get better they wouldn't be able to complain :D

    I bet patients wouldn't improve with the six minute walk. Think Frankenstein.

    This forum has taught me so much valuable information and this is just one example. I just have to think of a way to work this phrase into a conversation. I do see the dentist tomorrow. Hmmmmm.......

    I'm laughing hysterically. Thanks, I needed that!

    Geese, I wanted to do the same thing. I didn't think of that. However, if you are going into a speciality wouldn't these be the bodies you would want to explore? At least eventually?

    I've heard that you have to pay to donate your body to science. I also thought that unclaimed bodies that such as the homeless or a family feud are used. So they're not as picky there. But you have to keep in mind that this is ancedotal.

    Ah, missed the part that you are in the UK. I would think the rules would generally be the same but maybe not. Now I definitely have to look up this information.

    Night of the Vexatious Dead surely? Risen from the grave purely to file unwarrented FOI requests.

    I just hope it doesn't turn out that the subjects could be considered re-animated even if they were more dead than when they entered the trial.
