Representation of multiple body parts in the missing-hand territory of congenital one-handers

We previously reported that the missing hand's territory of one-handers becomes utilized by its cortical neighbor (residual arm representation), depending on residual arm usage in daily life to substitute for the missing hand's function [1, 2].
