Organ transplant recipients often experience inexplicable personality changes and memories that appear to come from donor of the original organ.
In many of those cases, it appears that emotions which were trapped in the donor (e.g., because of the donor’s sudden traumatic death) transfer into the recipient.
This transference provides critical insights into both the nature of consciousness and ways to mitigate many of the struggles transplant recipients face.
