Abstract:

This study is being done because post amputation pain PAP is common, yet very little is known about the causes of this pain. The purpose of this study is to see how PAP affects the body and brain by using sensory testing such as pinprick testing, taking pictures of your brain using a functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI machine and biomedical interventions such as an injection of pain medicine. We hope that by learning the causes of PAP, we can help future amputees.
