My understanding of cryobiology is fairly poor, so forgive me if this has
already been considered and rejected for some reason.

If the PR problem with neuropreservations centers around decapitation but
the reason we do neuros at all is out of a confidence that what's important
to preserve is brain structure, why not make neuropreservations purely
preservations of the brain rather than the whole head?

It's pretty standard in autopsies to open up the skull and remove the brain.
 I don't know how much damage to the brain comes from that procedure, but I
imagine that a reasonably well-trained cryonics team might be able to work
around that problem.

Then the whole decapitation PR problem vanishes and neuropreservations take
up even less storage room than before.

Is that a workable solution?
