I Got an ITCH for BIOLOGY!

As we conclude our unit on the Nervous System, Atul Gawande has a fascinating article about the nervous system, our brain and our body- itching, scratching, OCD and phantom limbs!

Respond to these questions:
Was the itching sensation M experienced "physical" or "all in her head"?

How does "perception is the brain’s best guess about what is happening in the outside world" relate to phantom limb pain?.
