In this exhibit, the subject places his hand under a brass model of a hand. The other person touches both the real hand and the brass hand in the same place. The subject's brain starts to respond as though the brass hand is his real hand. This came out of a scientific study on how the brain manages body part ownership.

It's a little creepy.
