Cortical Cryonics

YAML Idea

Focus on outer layers of the brain, where more abstract concepts are stored.

A recent discovery of a person that was leading a relatively normal life while missing 90% of the brain tissue indicates that probably the internal parts of the brain does not play very significant role in defining a person.

Apparently, our major focus should be twards preserving the cortical regions , and the "Cortical Cryonics" would be the cryonics that's focused on preserving the very outer layers first, and developing tools to cool the outer layers of the brain first.

Since the brain region (pontine tegmentum) responsible for consciousness has been identified, it would also be important to target it.
