First hour guest, Dr. Rollin McCraty(1) talked about cellular memory and transplants. A recent case(2) involving suicide linked a heart donor and recipient. Heart transplants more than any other organ, may involve the passing of memory or traits from the donor to the recipient, he said. This is because the heart responds before the brain, and in a way has its own brain(3), he continued.
In related news, Cheryl Johnson (pictured) reports having a personality change after receiving a kidney transplant, and believes her new tastes in literature came from her donor.A theory called 'cellular memory phenomenon' suggests that human body cells contain clues to our personality that can bypass brain cells. More on Johnson's case here.
