"The somatosensory cortex is like a map of your skin surface, where body parts are represented according to their sensitivity."
"An area of your brain called the somatosensory cortex is like a strip that runs over the top of your head a bit like a head band. This area handles tactile sensations from your arms and legs as well as your face."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
