“The most enjoyable part was drawing the cartoons and animating them with software. It was a time-consuming process, but I am in love with art as much as I am with science, so it was fun to do. The most challenging part of explaining a complex idea like phantom limb syndrome to a young audience was thinking about the right way to break the concept into digestible morsels of information — and without boring the audience! I ended up starting from the basics of somatosensation and worked my way into somatotopic organization and finally synaptic plasticity.”

Jackson created a Breakthrough Junior Challenge video to describe phantom limb syndrome.
