Do memories transfer with brain transplant?

Question:

The memory and intellect are not associated with the physical body correct? So if someone were to have a brain transplant, the transplanted brain should not come with any memories and karma of the donor. Is that right?

Answer:

Yes, that’s correct dear. The brain is an organ of the physical body. The mind is a subtle body and carries the strongest impressions of experiences which is nothing but the memory. Thus brain transplants will not transplant memories just like heart transplants will not transplant emotions and feelings.
