Phantom limb sensation, whether painful or not, frequently occurs after peripheral nerve lesions. It can be elicited by stimulating body parts adjacent to the amputation site (referred to as phantom sensation) and it is often similar in quality to the stimulation at the remote site. The present study induced referred phantom sensations in two upper limb amputees. Neuroelectric source imaging (ESI) as well as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to assess reorganization in… CONTINUE READING
