What is a Homunculus
A sensory Homunculus is a figure that operates as an objective map of the brain and body connection, a topographic representation of the sensory distribution between brain and body, the amount of the brain cortex devoted to any given body region being directly proportional to the size of that body region.
Consequently, areas of the body with less numerous somatosensory connections are represented as being smaller, whilst body regions rich in sensory or motor connections are perceived as being large.
The result of this is a distorted human figure in which the varying features and body areas have grown or shrunk to create what its creator, Dr Penfield Wilder called a ‘Grotesque figure’.
The word Homunculus is Latin for "little man".
