|The 'Homunculus' illustrated by Joe Scordo for Hidden Scents
Penfield's image is perhaps the most well known in representing the motor cortex. Because of the success of the image, he is confused as having discovered it. It was, in fact, discovered decades earlier.
The Penfield map has changed little in the years since its release. Whether or not scientific diagrams should be updated to withstand current aesthetic considerations is beside the point. The 'Homunculus' illustrated by Joe Scordo for Hidden Scents is another step in the sequence of representation and seriality.
