Based on these neuroplastic changes, physiotherapy has focused on strategies to help normalise these altered cortical representations of body maps
. One approach is graded motor imagery (GMI) (Bowering et al 2013, Daly and Bialocerkowski 2009, Moseley 2004b, Moseley 2006).
These two disorders are closely related to the phenomenon of phantom limbs insofar as they indicate the presence of a conflict between, on the one hand, the body map
held in the patient's brain and, on the other, proprioceptive and visual feedback from that particular limb.
These inscribed behaviours form part of our body maps

allows for these learnt behaviours to be acknowledged and remedied.

They focus on teaching students how to mentally represent the structures and function of the body and argue that movement and attention to the body map
are fundamental to singing and students must understand these aspects before technique comes into play.
The red top and shorts feature the same zonal body map

This gives a sense of voluntary motor control in the phantom limb that relieves the pain and, over time, modifies the representative cortical body map
. In 'The emerging mind' Ramachandran describes a number of unusual clinical presentations that have inspired him to explore the cortical function producing such atypical symptoms.
