We were watching Grey's Anatomy the other night and (spoiler alert) saw how Arizona used a mirror and other mental tricks to convince her brain to accept her leg having been amputated (and by tricks I mean she makes her colleague stab her prosthetic). Another avenue she tried was putting on an old school VR headset with a biofeedback interface. Now I'm wondering- I know VR has been used in medicine, but has it been used for individual who have amputations? Rather than the biofeedback shown where she learned to meditate, has it been used to make amputees "see" their limbs restored and relax the muscles around the amputation site or stop feeling phantom pain? I remember a House episode that dealt with the same topic- he used a mirror to help a patient's body release tense and painful muscles around an amputation site. VR has already shown itself to be a useful tool for studying perception, and I'm wondering what other intersectional areas of medicine and psychology it's been used for.
