    If you don't know what it is, this mode is a representation of the brain's encoding of body parts; in other words the bigger the body part the more neurons associated with them.

    Wally? Never. I got at least 50 years on him, so fasten your seat-belts.

    I like the thingy though. It's grotesquely cute, for something scientifically accurate.

    Less neurons, but higher in the pecking order.

    Notice the disparity between the left and right hands. Does this infer that the person so modelled is right-handed. :(

    I don't know about a man your age but my pecking order has lots and lots of neurons.

    Probably because most chaps' penises have minds of their own...

    As to where you'd find something that looks like that I'd be tempted to suggest Lincolnshire, although I do note that the examples posted all have the regulation number of fingers so probably not.

    To make it a little more understandable.... The model show what the human body would look like if each part part of the body grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain responsible for its movement. So.. because our hands have such dexterity there is a large portion of our motor sensory ability devoted to them--hence the large hands. The same can be said for the face a lips.

    Actually it can. Our ear drums are the "organ" of hearing--we receive a lot of information through hearing so the area dedicated to this sensory is larger than say the top of your head-- that rarely provides useful input or requires movement. the ears help facilitate our ability to hear so they are portrayed a large.

    Fair enough. But in your above post you stated: "The model show what the human body would look like if each part part of the body grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain responsible for its movement."

    So, unless it takes quite a bit of brainpower to wiggle your ears... :p

    Maybe it does take a lot of brainpower. I can't wiggle my ears........wait a minute!

    Ah, my mistake.. to clarify-- it's related to sensory/motor .. not just movement..

    You mean porn has sound? :eek:

    If you're concerned with the massive hand to penis ratio, let me assure you that it CAN be done.

    Please don't ask me how I know this. :(
