Two-point discrimination testing is a psychophysics experiment that is performed in K-16 classrooms, research settings, and even doctors' offices. In the classroom, it gives students a tangible demonstration of how our senses are mapped out in our brains and engages them in collecting real neuroscience data. We created the Homunculus Mapper so that amateur neuroscientists could quickly and easily analyze and visualize their collected data. The tool can be used by all ages, in classrooms, at science fairs, or at home; with a variety of protocols of increased or decreased scientific rigor.
