This mislocalization could be evoked almost equally from stimulation of either side of the body. Based on these findings obtained by magnetic source imaging and psychophysical testing in eight amputees, it is concluded that the extent of the generally known cortical reorganization contralateral to the amputation is an indicator of more widespread plastic changes in the brain involving bilateral pathways.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Pantev, Christo</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Flor, Herta</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Cortical reorganization in human amputees and mislocalization of painful stimuli to the phantom limb</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Taub, Edward</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Höhling, C.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:18:45Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Birbaumer, Niels</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/10521"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/10521/1/Knecht_et_al._95_Neurosc.Lett.pdf"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Neuroscience Letters 201 (1995), pp. 262-264</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Höhling, C.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/legalcode"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Henningsen, Henning</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Elbert, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Elbert, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/10521/1/Knecht_et_al._95_Neurosc.Lett.pdf"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Pantev, Christo</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Henningsen, Henning</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Flor, Herta</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Birbaumer, Niels</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>1995</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Knecht, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Taub, Edward</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
