SECRETS OF THE BRAIN 2
The mind is made up of interlinked connections to the rest of the body. Some individuals
can see yet they are blind while others can feel pain in other parts of the body that does not exist.
The mind has a distinct connection to the tissue of the body such that even when they are
removed, the bond between the brain and the organ is still active.
The phantom limb syndrome is found in people with amputated limbs. The individuals
tend to feel pain even when the limbs have been amputated. Even when the organ has been
removed from the main body, the brain still recognizes the presence of the organ as the body
image has already built up in the brain. The internal senses continue to appreciate their presence
despite them being physically absent.
All the body organs are mapped into the brain. The right side of the body is mapped on
the left side of the brain while the left part is mapped onto the right side of the brain. Each body
part triggers specific parts of the brain. If an amputated limb or organ is removed, the impulses
tend to extend to the next organ to which they used to be close, such that pain in one of the
merged organs is reflected the other as they are interconnected into the brain. The
interconnections indicate that there exists massive reorganization in the brain when one part is
eliminated.
After the amputation has been done, some of the people are unable to control their pains.
The inability to control the pain is as a result of the brain sending impulses to the amputated
organ, in which it does not receive any feedback. The lack of an immediate feedback triggers
more instructions to the targeted part as the brain is not aware that the region does not exist.
More instructions with no response increase the pain in the amputated organ making the victim
have the phantom pain.
