Phantom pain after amputation, artwork

Phantom pain after amputation. Artwork of a man experiencing phantom pain (red flash) from his amputated hand (left). This is caused by stimuli to the motor and pre-motor cortical areas of his brain (upper centre) that were previously associated with controlling the hand. This is indicated by the hand symbol at upper right. The feelings can range from sensation of posture and presence, to movement, pressure, touch, heat and cold, itchiness and pain. Various treatments are possible, ranging from therapy to drugs and brain surgery

EDITORS COMMENTS
This artwork titled "Phantom Pain after Amputation" captures the complex experience of a man suffering from phantom pain in his amputated hand. The image showcases the intricate connection between the brain and body, highlighting how stimuli to specific areas of the motor and pre-motor cortex can trigger intense sensations and discomfort. The central focus is on the man's amputated hand, depicted with a striking red flash symbolizing the phantom pain he endures. Surrounding this visual representation are various anatomical elements, including a hand symbol at the upper right corner signifying its previous control over movement. This thought-provoking illustration emphasizes that phantom pain can manifest in different ways, ranging from posture and presence to touch, heat, coldness, itchiness, and even excruciating pain. The photograph also sheds light on potential treatments for this condition. It suggests that therapy, medication or even brain surgery may be viable options for alleviating these distressing sensations. By exploring both physiological and psychological aspects of phantom limb experiences through artistry and scientific knowledge, this print prompts viewers to contemplate the complexities of human biology while offering hope for those grappling with such challenges. Science Photo Library has expertly captured not only an artistic masterpiece but also an educational tool that deepens our understanding of neural pathways associated with amputation-related conditions like neuropathic pain.
