    Maybe in the future but not yet. Except in Hollywood. It happens all the time there..

    No, but transl pants are certainly badly needed, judging by many questions and answers in this forum.

    It can be done with newts.

    The problem with doing it with mammals is that nerves don't reconnect.  Your best outcome would be paralysis.

    At this point in the medical and scientific world such a feat would be absolutely impossible there's literally millions of nerves at the base of the brain where it connects to the spine. Even if it was possible to figure out which nerve was which we don't have any way to join the nerves together. you can't just tie nerves together with a staple or a string and have them grow together they don't do that. Once a nerve snaps it's very difficult to get it back together. If it was possible to get a nerve to go back together don't you think that they would start off with the human eyeball there's plenty of cadavers and recent dead people but we can harvest eyeballs out of and give sight to the blind if we could splice nerve cells but we can't. If we can't even do an eye forget doing a brain.

    In theory, yes. In reality, not likely since it is a very complex in terms of splicing all of the nerves

    remotely possible, not in the immediate future. 

    But if you have your brain removed and a new one installed, you would be dead, and your old body would be controlled by the new brain. 

    in other words, a full body transplant is a more accurate way to represent it.
