Scientists from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne in Switzerland have made a breakthrough in mapping how the brain can control artificial limbs.The research was published Friday in the journal Brain. It examined how targeted motor and sensor reinnervation, or TMSR, changes the way the brain processes motor control and somatosensory input.TMSR is a surgical procedure performed on patients who have had amputations of limbs.
