Educator resources are meant to give access to information and teaching tools about the nervous system and related health issues. Resources target primary and secondary school levels.

Did you know your brain has a map of your body? But this map is not proportional to actual space – different parts of your body take up more space in your brain than others! Discover how your brain visualizes your body by making your own ‘cortical homunculus’ in this hands-on activity from the Max Planck Florida Institute.

Access The Homunculus Mapper at Max Planck Institute.
