Testing the Acceptance of Phantom Limb in Non-Amputees
Region:Renfrew County
City:Pembroke, ON
Abstract:The experiencing of body parts that are not present on your body is called a ‘Phantom Limb’. This experiment was conducted to test if the brain of a non-amputee accepts a simulated phantom limb as part of their body. This technique utilizes the phantom limb sensation to help with proper and faster reorganization of altered sensory and motor maps in brain.
