Noel Segura Meraz et al. develop a sixth finger system as an extension of the human body. They then investigate how an extra robotic thumb, that works as a sixth finger and gives somatosensory feedback to the user, modifies the body schema, and also affects the self-perception of existing limbs. They find that not only is the sixth finger incorporated into the body schema of the user, but also the body schema of the controlling finger is modified.
