  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

It has been shown in patients with phantom limb pain that the primary somatosensory cortex undergoes reorganization of receptive field representation (invasion of the phantom limb area by the adjacent area). This reorganization is highly correlated with phantom limb pain and unrelated to the non-painful phantom sensation. These findings led to the hypothesis that restoration of original cortical organization might diminish phantom limb pain.
