Homunculus

The sensory motor homunculus resizes the body parts of the human being according to the amount of cortical representation it has. The hands, lips are larger and the torso is small as the amount of brain processing power devoted to that body part is less.

Motor somato

  • Trauma aside, be it accident or surgery, where is your pain?
  • Is the pain in the enlarged “smart” regions or the small “stupid” parts?
  • Is society plagued by hand and lip pain or by back, hip & knee pain?
