Cortex Man

noun

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.
