Heather Mills McCartney

I don't have an opinion on her marriage or the allegations that she is a fantasist, but I thought this, from 'Phantoms in the Brain' by V.S. Ramachandran, might be worth quoting:

Recall that in the Penfield map {of the brain}the foot is beside the genitals. Therefore if a person loses a leg and is then stimulated in the genitals, she will experience the sensations in her phantom leg.
