Haven't really thought much about it. You're the first to express 
any interest. Although probably not the best method: one way of 
going about this, would be to have the local funeral director 
remove the brain and place it in a refrigerated container filled with
alcohol or ethylene glycol, which is packed with silica gel beads to 
remove the water quickly. Silica gel beads are available in pet stores, 
as a premium cat litter.
