This idea is discussed (both the science and the philosophy considered) in Frances Larson very excellent book 'Severed - a History of Heads Lost and Found'

Review here (by yours truly for George Aranda's site) if you're interested: http://sciencebookaday.com/2015/02/12/sarah-keenihan-reviews-severed-a-history-of-heads-lost-and-heads-found/
