YUP! At the back of my skull low and in the middle where my head attaches to my spine.
That's your external occipital protruberance - and it's entirely normal. Historically some scientists thought that the shape of the skull revealed the relative sizes of the different parts of the brain sitting beneath. Since these different brain regions were thought to have different functions, the "phrenologists" as they were known suggested that feeling the shape and contours of the head could reveal a subject's strengths and weaknesses.The external occipital protruberance sits above the part of the brain called the cerebellum, which we now know is involved in making fine, accurate movements. But in the past it was thought to be linked to love! So if you believe what the phrenologists were saying, and you have a big external occipital protruberance, then you should be a great lover. Which just goes to show that, when it comes to love, size is definitely important.Chris
