Who is this important little guy?


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

Let us give you a clue: his name in Homuncu­lus.

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)
