Phantom limb pain. Can you imagine how frustrating that would be?

We all watch videos on LiveLeak where people lose a limb, whether it results from a traumatic injury or from the Mexican cartels, people lose limbs all the damn time in the vids on this site..Vilayanur Ramachandran is a brilliant and innovative neurologist who has invented a mechanism called a "mirror box" that has proven to eliminate such phantom limb pain in the majority of amputees who try it. Fast forward to the 3 minute mark if you only want to see the mirror box demonstration.
