anatomy, the head of an animal is the rostral part (from
anatomical position) that usually comprises the brain, eyes,
ears, nose and mouth (all of which aid in various sensory
functions, such as sight, hearing, smell, and taste). Some very
simple animals may not have a head, but many bilaterally
symmetric forms do.
literally means head to head. The phrase is used to describe an
informal private conversation between two people, especially
humans, the head and particularly the face are the main
distinguishing feature between different people, due to their
easily discernible features such as hair and eye color, nose, eye
and mouth shapes, wrinkles, etc. Human faces are easily
differentiable to us due to our brains' predispositions toward
discriminating human facial forms. When observing a relatively
unfamiliar species, all faces seem to be nearly identical, and
human infants are biologically programmed to recognize subtle
differences in anthropic facial features.
who are more intelligent than normal are sometimes depicted in
cartoons as having bigger heads, as a way of indicating that they
have a larger brain; in science fiction, an extraterrestrial
having a big head is often symbolic of high intelligence. Outside
of this symbolic depiction, however, advances in neurobiology
have shown that the functional diversity of the brain means that
a difference in overall brain size is not a reliable indicator of
how much, if any, difference in overall intelligence exists
between two humans.
head is a source for many metaphors and metonymies in human
language, including referring to things which are often located
near the human head ( "the head of the bed"), things
which are physically similar to the way an animal's (or human's)
head is arranged spatially vis-à-vis its body ("the
head of the table"), even if this is so metaphorically ("the
head of the class/FBI"), and things which represent some
characteristic we associate with the head, such as intelligence
("there are a lot of good heads in this company").
These examples are all from English, but only some are possible
expressions in other languages (depending on the language). (See
Lakoff and Johnson 1980, 1999)
