Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Our amazing brain....
I have read some articles lately that have really intrigued me. One of the articles was about how scientists have found that there are still connections in the brain of a mouse, even when those connections have been severed and put into close proximity to each other. The other article that I will talk about more today is about our brains ability to continue to store the memory of a limb that is no longer there.
We have places in our brain that directs the processes of our body. Scientists have discovered these places for where fingers should be when they are no longer there. They have also investigated if these places would be apparent in the brains of people that were born without a limb or fingers. They have been unable to find the brain response to these areas of no limbs, with someone that was born without a limb. What is next for this kind of research is that they will try to find if the brain can be stimulated to help the people that have an artificial limb. We are amazing!
I read another article about replacing the limb with a graft from another person. They have had varied results, mostly because our bodies are programed to reject anything that is foreign. There are drugs, but the effectiveness of these drugs can cause problems with the other systems in our bodies.
LENS helps with getting the brain up and running in the correct way. I have not been able to work with people with missing limbs. It would be interesting to try. I do not claim to be able to grow another limb but it could help with the mental anguish that would go along with this problem.
