Interesting. I didn't know they could do that. The number of nerve endings in the face must be astronomical.

I had severe nerve damage throughout the upper right quadrant of my body 32 years ago. At first the nerves felt like they were cross wired because a mosquito bite on my back would itch on my chest. Now they seem to be rewiring back to normal, but it took all this time. This lad will have a hard time, I would think, adjusting to his new face,.
