cellular regeneration

just a question... if claire has the ability to regenerate (like in the lizards episode season two when she cut off her toe and another toe grew to replace it) what would happen if she cut off her head? would another head grow to replace it? and what about the head that was cut off... would another body grow onto that head?... and then there could be two claires? ... any input??

no, she would die, adam monroe said this and it was also show in angela petrelli's future vision, i think that as the abilities appear to be located in adrenalin as per mohinder's research then she would need her brain and heart at least to be able to regenerate, could be wrong tho

Back in season one, when Brody Mitchum accidentally killed Claire at the party, there was something sticking out of the back of her head. It was only when this was removed that she was able to regenerate.
The same thing happens when Sylar telekinetically throws the glass (in Mohinder's apartment) in order to hit the invisible Peter. Peter only regained consciousness after the glass shard was removed from his head.
This possibly means that Chandra was partially right about abilities "originating" in the brain (and why Sylar slices open people's skulls when stealing the abilities of others). While they may be driven by adrenalin, the brain (being the thing that keeps us alive by keeping the heart going) is what tells the adrenal glands to actually produce adrenalin in the first place.
To cut a long story short, if Claire's head was removed, the brain would not be able to tell her adrenal glands to produce adrenalin (because they wouldn't be connected), and she would be dead.

in angella's dream after noxx ripped off claires head he dragged her body away, which leads me to believe that she will die if the two were kept apart, i think if the head was placed back on the cells would reatach. Otherwise when sylar said she cant be killed it was a damn LIE!!! lol
