Synaesthesia in phantom limbs induced with mirrors

An inexpensive new device is introduced - a ‘virtual reality box’ - to resurrect the phantom visually to study the effects of visual input on phantom sensations, suggesting that there is a considerable amount of latent plasticity even in the adult human brain.
