Who is this important little guy?


homunculusWho, or what is this? Why are we talking about him?

Explanation: The cortical Homunculus is a physical representation of the human body, located within the brain. It is a neurological “map” of the anatomical divisions of the body. And you can easily notice which areas are overrepresented, indicating the most sensitive areas in our bodies (because there are more nerves and because our brain devotes more resources to process information from those nerves)
