The orderly representations of sensory surfaces in the brains of adult mammals have the capacity to reorganize after injuries that deprive these representations of some of their normal sources of activation. Such reorganizations can be produced by injury that occurs peripherally, such as nerve damage or amputation, or after injury to the CNS, such as spinal cord damage or cortical lesion. These changes likely are mediated by a number of different mechanisms, and can be extensive and involve the growth of new connections. Finally, some types of reorganizations may help mediate the recovery of lost functions, whereas others may lead to sensory abnormalities and perceptual errors.
