You have a tiny human in your brain. In a typically developing brain, individuals have sections of the brain that map onto the different parts of the body. Your brain has neurological maps that interpret the sensation of touch and control muscle movements in different parts of your body. If you want to wave hello, there is a part of your brain that specially designated to control you hand movement. If your nose itches, there is a part of your brain that is set aside for that too.
