Heart transplant talk

Several years ago I viewed a television documentary on a heart transplant anomaly which happens in a small percentage of cases. The anomaly was that the transplant recipient took on some of the likes and passions and maybe some of the characteristics of the transplant donor. For example a middle-aged woman had a transplanted heart from a young man who had been an avid mountaineer. After the transplant the woman started having strong desires to climb mountains something which she had not had before. There were other similar cases cited in the documentary. The patients concerned were very troubled by their experiences. It seems that the heart may have a memory! Maybe the heart is to the soul what the brain is to the mind and is not just an organ for pumping blood around the body?
