Advanced bionic limbs mapped in the brain for the first time.

Neuroprosthesis research in amputee patients aims to develop new prostheses which move and feel like real limbs. Targeted muscle and sensory reinnervation (TMSR) enables amputees to control robotic prosthetic devices using their brain and to regain sensory feedback.  TMSR changes the way the brain processes motor control and somatosensory input; however these detailed brain mechanisms have never been mapped before.
