dri_fi2ness A "homunculus" is a "little man." A sensory homunculus is a diagram that depicts the "relative" amount of sensory information sent to the brain by various body parts. So, the fingers and lips are shown as very large because they send a lot of information to the brain; the knees are drawn smaller becuase they send less information to the brain.

Source(s): http://www.cs.uta.fi/~jh/homunculus.html shows both sensory AND motor homunculi

floatuniverse Matthieu Ricard, a 66-year old #Tibetan #monk and #geneticist, produces #brain #gamma waves—linked to #consciousness, #attention, #learning and #memory—never before reported in #neuroscience, leading researchers to conclude that Ricard is the world’s #happiest man. The #secret to his #success in achieving #bliss? #Meditation, he claims. “Meditating is like lifting weights or #exercising for the #mind”, Ricard told the Daily News. “Anyone can be #happy by simply training their brain”, he says.
To #quantify just how happy Ricard is, neuroscientists at the University of Wisconsin attached 256 sensors to the monk’s skull. When he #meditated on #compassion, the researchers were shocked to see that Ricard’s brian produces a level of gamma waves off the charts. He also demonstrated excessive activity in his brain’s left prefrontal cortex compared to its right counterpart, meaning he has an abnormally large capacity for happiness and a reduced propensity towards negativity, the researchers say.

youniversaltruism Stuart A. Kauffman, theoretical biologist and complex-systems researcher: “Nobody has the faintest idea what #consciousness is.... I don’t have any idea. Nor does anybody else, including the philosophers of mind.” Roger W. Sperry, Nobel Prize-winning neurophysiologist: “Those centermost processes of the brain with which consciousness is presumably associated are simply not understood. They are so far beyond our comprehension at present that no one I know of has been able even to imagine their nature.” Eugene P. Wigner, Nobelist in physics: “We have at present not even the vaguest idea how to connect the physio-chemical processes with the state of mind.” Physicist Nick Herbert, an expert in #nonlocality: “#Science’s biggest mystery is the #nature of consciousness. It is not that we possess bad or imperfect theories of human #awareness; we simply have no such theories at all. About all we know about consciousness is that it has something to do with the head, rather than the foot.” Physicist Freeman J. Dyson: “The origin of life is a total mystery, and so is the #existence of human consciousness. We have no clear idea how the electrical discharges occurring in nerve cells in our brains are connected with our feelings and desires and actions.” Philosopher Jerry A. Fodor, of Rutgers University: “Nobody has the slightest idea how anything material could be conscious. Nobody even knows what it would be like to have the slightest idea about how anything material could be conscious. So much for the philosophy of consciousness.” Philosopher John R. Searle, of the University of California, Berkeley: “At the present state of the investigation of consciousness we don’t know how it works and we need to try all kinds of different ideas.” Mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose: “My position [on consciousness] demands a major revolution in physics.... I’ve come to believe that there is something very fundamental missing from current science.... Our understanding at this time is not adequate and we’re going to have to move to new regions of science....” Niels Bohr, one the great patriarchs of quantum physics: “We can admittedly find nothing in physics or 5h
  •   youniversaltruism chemistry that has even a remote bearing on consciousness.... Quite apart from the laws of physics and chemistry, as laid down in quantum theory, we must also consider laws of quite a different kind.” Neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield: “It will always be quite impossible to explain the mind on the basis of neuronal action within the brain.... Although the content of consciousness depends in large measure on neuronal activity, awareness itself does not....To me, it seems more and more reasonable to suggest that the mind may be a distinct and different essence.” Sir John Maddox, the editor for 22 years of the prestigious journal Nature: “What consciousness consists of ... is ... a puzzle. Despite the marvelous successes of #neuroscience in the past century... we seem as far from understanding cognitive process as we were a century ago.” ”As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter." -Max Planck 5h

violetjamie 5.31.2015. 👭👬🏼The exact words the little girl that is full of energy and bright smiles I first met #12 yrs ago at Juilliard still rings in my ears when she introduced her Mr. Right to me. This young lady have been a great #musician and #violist, then a scientist pursing #Neuroscience and #Medicine. Now, she is ready to take on her next role in life, being a loving and caring wife. This younger #sister that I never had, has shown me the way of life and not afraid to show her passions and not hesitant to pursue her interest. I know #AlexAndSean will have it All: successful career, loving family, and a great life full of #stores to tell. Congratulations to the #NewlyWed Couple! #BrooksAndKelly 6h
