"Thank you @shaniatwain for making my Christmas. Hope you guys like it." Say All You Want for Christmas is a love song, with lyrics including the lines, "When we're all alone and you hold me close/Say all you want for Christmas is me."

Virtual reality could be the answer to treating phantom pain .
Immersive virtual reality has huge potential in medicine.The team had test subjects wear VR goggles showing live feed from a camera filming a set of dummy legs. Since the camera was positioned to mimic a person's POV in relation to their legs, the VR provided the illusion that the dummy legs were truly theirs. So, when the scientists simultaneously tapped the dummy legs and the area above the subjects' spinal lesions caused by their injury, the subjects eventually felt like it was their own legs being tapped. They told the researchers that the sensation diminished the neuropathic pain they felt.
