This still seems to be something the person needs to report. Sensing Effort Where does this report arise? If we look specifically at the voluntary pathways, it makes sense to try to find the will somewhere in the link between brain and muscles. Psychologists and physiologists long hoped to establish where exactly in the connection from brain to body and back again the feeling of effortful action might be found (Scheerer 1987). They presumed that the feeling of effort is the same as the sense of will, or at least that the two experiences are related (although this is certainly arguable; see Ginet 1986).

After all, there were no muscles out there, only a phantom. Phantom limb movements always occur consciously and are not spontaneously made (Jones 1988), and this also seems to substantiate the idea that there is some consciousness of a signal being sent to the absent limb. Further research has found, however, that the sense of moving a phantom limb voluntarily depends on the continued functioning of sensory nerves and muscles in the stump. Henderson and Smyth (1948) observed that every voluntary movement of a phantom limb was accompanied by a contraction of the appropriate muscles in the stump, and that if the remaining muscles in the stump had lost their nerve connections, the ability to move the phantom was lost.

In one such case, the patient said, “I didn’t do that. ” (Penfield 1975, 76). When further stimulation caused the patient to vocalize, he said: “I didn’t make that sound. ” Now, the movements the patient was making here were not the spasms one might associate with electrical stimulation of a muscle itself.
