Cryonics

Has there been any research on recovering memory data from frozen and 
unfrozen cells, aside from instinctual responses which aren't really 
memory anyway.  

It seems like there were some positive studies that showed retention in 
mice after freezing.  About 10  yrs ago.

20 years ago we referred to it as cryogenics, and it was $10,000 then.  
My kids have always been fascinated at my desire to be frozen.  
They've expressed no interest in it to date, nor do they read my lit on 
longevity.  I can't even get them to watch a modern 'fountain of youth' 
tape we have.

My son tells me regularly that for each minute I do aerobic exercise, my 
lifespan is increased another minute.  His comments are motivating.
