The sci-fi dream of freezing our bodies so we are able to wake up in the future, or even upload our brain into a robot, has taken a step closer to becoming reality.

Scientists have managed to cryonically freeze the brain of a rabbit and recover it in near-perfect condition.

They said the brain demonstrates that ‘near-perfect, long term structural preservation of an intact brain is achievable,’ and suggests the technique could one day be available to humans.

While it may be years before the technique becomes mainstream, scientists led by MIT graduate Robert McIntyre, have made a significant step forward by freezing a rabbit brain while causing minimal damage to it.
