In this special episode, Dr. Daniel Correa thanks Dr. Audrey Nath for her time with the Brain & Life podcast by sharing bonus content from a previous interview with palliative care physician Dr. BJ Miller. Dr. Miller talks about phantom limb pain that can accompany a limb amputation and therapies—such as mirror box therapy—that helped him with his own recovery after losing both legs below the knees and half an arm after an electrocution accident. Next, Dr. Correa sits down with Dr. Vilayanur Subramanian (V.S.) Ramachandran, director of the Center for Brain and Cognition and distinguished professor with the Psychology Department and Neurosciences Program at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Ramachandran explains phantom limb pain and how his team developed mirror box therapy to treat it.
