Neuros need to generate much less money for the patient care trust
because they use MUCH less LN2 to keep them frozen (because they are
much smaller). The main ongoing cost is obviously retopping the dewars
with LN2.

As far as reanimation goes... Regenerating a body from the neck down
will likely be FAR easier than repairing a frozen brain. Infact there is
a lot of research in that area right now. Do a search engine search of
"headless human clones" and you'll find lots of articles like this one:
