Brahams reviews the legal considerations when procuring cadaveric brain tissue for research purposes. Under British law, the removal of organs for research is governed by the Human Tissue Act 1961. Brahams discusses the Act's provisions concerning consent for the use of all or part of a body after death, lawful possession of a dead body, and who may remove cadaveric organs for research.
