Proprioception \ Cracked Cerebellum by 1TrollSniper1 Proprioception \ Cracked Cerebellum by 1TrollSniper1

This piece is about the sense of proprioception and damage to the cerebellum with which it is functionally associated with. 
Essentially, proprioception allows us to know where each body part is related to the rest of the body. It is the sensation of the body itself. A simple example of this sense would be when you reach out with your hand to take something without looking.

Reading "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat" I found out about many interesting neurological cases and many of them hit me hard emotionally, such as the case of Jimmy G. with Korsakoff's syndrome which inhibited him from forming new memories.
The inspiration for this piece was from one of those cases which was about Christina "The Disembodied Lady" who lacked any sense of proprioception, hence the empty figure. Originally, these are two drawings edited to fit one.

Tools:
Rapidograph pens sizes 0.05, 0.2, 0.4, 0.8 
1 black marker



Thank you very much!

Ever since I learned what proprioception is, I was quite fascinated with it. This is a very interesting visualisation.

Yes, it's pretty cool. It's so basic that most people don't even notice it. There are somewhat 21 senses give or take.

There are 6-5 popular and known senses but we have a lot more than that. There are even sub groups to specific areas in our bodies or senses to specific functions done by our bodies.
