Cortex Man (scientific name: Cortical Homunculus) is important for anyone who works in human learning (hint: that's really everyone... educators, corporate trainers, public speakers, parents, employers, marketing executives, etc.)
*NOTE: The Cortex Man project is currently a pilot project. We charge the exact price it costs for Shapeways (a third party 3D printer) to print the item. There is no markup on our part.

What one sees quite readily is the [literally] massive role that the hands and eyes (and mouth although that's slightly more difficult to teach to) play in both sensory and motor cortex. Cortex Man provides the scientific basis for the importance of visual diagramming (sometimes referred to as NLR or non-linguistic representation) and...
