Neck has cadaver bone fusion and plate and screws in back of throat
Hello and Welcome to our Back and Neck Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post your question.
Yes, plates and screws (hardware) any where in our body can become loosen - or they may "move." It's not uncommon. Are you having pain or discomfort?
Wow, you've asked a loaded - and very interesting question regarding your dreams. I am far from qualified to answer that question. It's my guess that answers will vary depending on who you ask - and what their background.
Medical Science says that our body's organs have something called cellular memory. Major organs like the heart, liver, kidney, and even muscles are known to contain large populations of neural networks, which are self-contained brains and produce noticeable changes. This is what is called, "Cellular Memory."
However it's the large organs, mostly hearts that some scientist believe may produce changes in organ recipients. I haven't read anything that says cadaver bone can do the same. Indeed everything I've read say this is believed to be mostly confined to hearts. These larger organs/human tissues contain large populations of neural networks (neurons), which are self-contained brains - or cellular memory. Transfer of memories with transplants of smaller amounts of human tissues have not been reported because they don’t contain large population of neurons. According to some articles, science discovered evidence that nervous system organs store memories and respond to places, events, and people recognized by their donors.
Dr. Andrew Armour a pioneer in neuro-cardiology suggests that the brain has two-way communication links with the “little brain in the heart.” The intelligence of neural brains in organs depends on memories stored in nerve cells.
Some documented examples include: One of the few cases was with a female, who changed her food preferences after she received her heart, and lung transplants in the 1970s from an eighteen-year old male donor. When she woke up, she claimed to have profound craving for chicken nuggets, beer, and green peppers, foods she didn’t enjoy before the surgery.
One of the most stunning examples was found in an eight-year-old girl who received a heart from a ten-year-old girl who was murdered. The organ donor recipient was perplexed with vivid nightmares about an attacker and a girl being murdered. The psychiatrist believed that her memories were genuine and due to the violent recurring dreams, the recipient could describe the events, and the murderer was later apprehended by the police.
One of articles I read said he these reported the most notable occurrences was published in Near-Death studies magazine in 2002 entitled “Changes in Heart Transplant Recipients That Parallel the Personalities of Their Donors.” I have not read this article.
Is this true? You know you can't believe everything you read. I can't tell you one way or the other. If it is true I can't locate anything that notes this cellular memory with cadaver bones.
Skeptics speculate that while patients are under anesthesia, they hear nurses and doctors talking about the donor however no donor organs arrive with a complete personality profile. I can't make sense of this.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts and the thoughts of our members.
