Cortex Man, or "cortical homunculus" (wikipedia) is a representation of the human body from the perspective of the human mind and its mapped neural connectivity. There are more neurons connecting your brain to your hands and eyes than all the other part of your body combined.
See blog post on Cortex Man. Because of Cortex Man, CRL's research focuses on tactile and visual tools and technologies. As part of this effort, we made the cortical homunculus available in a 3D printed model. As a figurine developed by CRL, a constant desk reminder of why you need to make things visual and tactile. Check out a video about "Cortex Man:"

Every child (and adult) should learn about Cortex Man. It's how your brain sees/experiences your body.

Cortex Man available at Shapeways 3D printing by CRL in regular and educational (no penis/clothed) versions. Or you can order a hand sculpted Cortex Man from brilliant artist, Sharon Price James.

A number of folks are doing more and more of this. If I had another life I would maybe do this for a living because it looks surreal and fun to quantitatively draw weird animals like Mouseunculus
