The entire body’s skin is mapped out in the brain. Left side on the right side of the brain, and vice versa. Caused by neuro-pathways changing. Neuropathways “takeover” the area of the brain that has been deprived of stimulation due to the lack of a limb. o Phantom can occur in any part of the body. Ie.
