An Australian study of body perception convinced test subjects that fake plastic fingers were real after the individuals had their actual fingers numbed and blocked from view. Researchers from Neuroscience Research Australia said that the experiments, which relied on muscle receptors inside the arm, could help stroke victims and those suffering from phantom limb pain. The findings were published in the Journal of Physiology.
