On a small tangent...

It's worth considering why brain cells are never replaced - memory would be dependent (directly or indirectly) on the wiring of the brain cells, but nature's never found a way to replace a brain cell with identical (or functionally equivalent) wiring. So replacing brain cells would be at the expense of memory.
