When we assume that peripheral touch receptor densities are equal in tall and short people, then tall people should have more touch receptors than short people, given the larger amount of skin surface in the former. Hence my question:
Do taller people have larger somatosensory cortices than short people? And analogues to that, what about larger motor cortices in tall people? If tall people need larger somatosensory and motor areas, could this imply that they have less space devoted to other functions, like functions devoted to the prefrontal cortex?
