Many scientists, doctors, and psychologists have studied this syndrome and have found various forms of treatment. A neuroscientist by the name of Vilayanur S. Ramachandran developed an unconventional technique called mirror box therapy. When a patient receives mirror box therapy they are given a mirrored box with two hole openings for the limbs. The patient places the attached limb inside one opening of the box and then the phantom limb is inserted inside the other opening in the box. The image of the attached limb is projected onto the phantom limb giving it the appearance that it is a normal functioning limb. The sensory feedback from the projected image to the brain helps patients who suffer from this syndrome to manage pain or mental anguish from the loss of a limb.
