The best way to cool the brain in the quickest manner would be this - have a
row of long, sharp razor blades side by side (so that they are parrallel to
eachother), a centimeter between each of them, and each one cooled to a very
low temperature. One press slices the brain into several centimeter-thick
How irreprable would the damage be? I imagine that the super-computing
needed to reverse ice-damage would not have such a hard time figuring out
which half-axon in wafer X matched up with which half-axon in wafer Y, but
there would also be some "dragging" I think - ripping a cell apart and
smearing its contents over the blade and rest of the brain, fixing this
would indeed be like making "cows out of hamburger", but how much of a
factor would it be? Also, are we even going on the correct assumption, that
faster cooling is better?
