"I would say 75% of the economy is now being run by ex-science-fiction fans."
- Greg Bear

  A very early example of encasing a human brain in a robotic body.  

This is an early reference to this idea.

"You are undoubtedly a robot," admitted the President. "Now, will you be good enough to show us your reasoning mechanism?"

"First," said the robot, "I will tell you what Bradshaw discovered after more than twenty years of research. There can be no reasoning or thought without life. All life as we know it is a combination of two things—mind and matter. We have never been able to discover any form of life that is not a combination of both. The brain is not the mind, but in human beings it is the medium through which it makes itself manifest. Behold!

He snatched off the blond wig and skull-case. The astounded onlookers saw a human brain snugly encased in a transparent skull-shaped receptacle. Tenuous, fine strands, almost inviible, extended in an intricate network over the delicate brain membranes. The hairlike strands almost completely covered the cerebellum and cerebrum, converging in the sickle- shaped partition of the falx cebri, which divides the two hemispheres of the cerebrum. The entire brain was immersed in some viscous solution, it envelop the' exposed furrows and convolutions.
