The Sensory Homunculus Man in the Parietal Lobes of the Brain "This model shows what a man's body would look like if each part grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain concerned with its sensory perception.
Redrawing the brain’s motor map Neuroscientists at Emory have refined a map showing which parts of the brain are activated during head rotation, resolving a decades-old puzzle. Their findings may help.
