I have just read a very positive heartwarming story about a man who received a double hand transplant. He is now able to do many everyday tasks with his hands that I basically long to do.
Has anyone any idea why it is possible for the brain and nervous system to connect usefully in this way with hands that are not even his biologically when my own hand I have had from birth is so stubbornly unresponsive to my nervous system? It makes me wonder whether these lines of enquiry are been vigourously explored by the neuroscientists. Any explanation or insight into this would be gratefully received!
