  - Various research has gone into detailed brainscans to "snapshot" the pathways and active regions of a brain.  However this appears to be an impossible job as the detail required, and the virtual impossibility of applying that "snapshot" to a replacement suggest this is mostly a dead end.  Useful as it gives insight into what part of the brain performs what function, but no more than a stepping stone to other areas of research. This has led to -   - Various research has gone into detailed brainscans to "snapshot" the pathways and active regions of a brain.  However this appears to be an impossible job as the detail required, and the virtual impossibility of applying that "snapshot" to a replacement suggest this is mostly a dead end.  Useful as it gives insight into what part of the brain performs what function, but no more than a stepping stone to other areas of research.

An experiment where they wired an electronic compass into someones brain, and quickly adapted to be able to use it proves this is possible.

In effect telepathy, or telekinetics made real. This has opened up one further possibility -
  - Since the brain can adapt to utilise "new" features..  this implies that the human "personality" or "soul" is simply a highly complex and evolving "computer program"  which suggests the key to living forever at least as a self aware entity, isn't copying the brain, it is the "Interface" to the brain -  if you interface into the human brain an adequately intuitive two way information or data communication channel the brain would start utilising the extra capacity this interface provides.   Over time the brain "program" could integrate more and more with the "interface", until the entire mind existed within it, replacing the brain almost entirely.    At this point a time may come where they could discard the body entirely for something else.   - Since the brain can adapt to utilise "new" features..  this implies that the human "personality" or "soul" is simply a highly complex and evolving "computer program"  which suggests the key to living forever at least as a self aware entity, isn't copying the brain, it is the "Interface" to the brain -  if you interface into the human brain an adequately intuitive two way information or data communication channel the brain would start utilising the extra capacity this interface provides.   Over time the brain "program" could integrate more and more with the "interface", until the entire mind existed within it, replacing the brain almost entirely.    At this point a time may come where they could discard the body entirely for something else.
