I think it would progress just like dementia or brain cancer as far as the subject is concerned. They would experience increasing alienation from their mind and body as more of their brain was converted to an automated processing and control system. The extent to which that would translate into behavior that doctors, family, and friends would notice depends entirely on the quality of the technology used to destroy and replace the person. The test that I would use would be, as I have mentioned, to have someone be walked off of their brain one hemisphere at a time, and then walked back on. Ideally this process would be repeated several times for different durations. That is the only test that could possibly work as far as I can tell - of course it wouldn't prove success or failure beyond any theoretical doubt, but it would be a pretty good indicator.
