The book is forbidding because the thalamus is complex, mysterious and seemingly useless - like the hieroglyphics carved on an old pointed rock sold in a bazaar as a hatrack. Other far more expensive tomes on the thalamus insist that it is merely a hatrack, but Sherman and Guillery rightly concentrate on the hieroglyphics, though they Cited by: The thalamus is located ventrally (toward the belly), and the hypothalamus is located dorsally (toward the back). The thalamus is a large, rounded structure consisting of gray matter. It is made up of two egglike masses that lie on either side of the third ventricle, one of the large openings in the brain through which cerebrospinal fluid flows. This book provides an in-depth look at the function of the thalamus and its role as relayer of information to the cerebral cortex. The authors explore how the thalamus controls messages that are passed to the cortex and they introduce the novel suggestion that the thalamus serves a critical role in controlling how messages pass from one part of.

The thalamic nuclei are of significance in various disease states.

Examines the two-way relationships between the thalamus and the cerebral cortex; with updated material and a new chapter on the link between perception and action. The thalamus plays a critical role in perceptual processing, but many questions remain about what thalamic activities contribute to sensory and motor functions. In this book, two pioneers in research on the . Edward G. Jones' The Thalamus is one of the most cited publications in neuroscience.

As a Price: $   The thalamus (from the Greek word meaning “chamber”) is centrally located between the cerebral cortex and the midbrain and is known for its role in relaying sensory and motor signals to the cerebral cortex, and in the regulation of sleep, consciousness, and alertness—rather like a hub of information flow from the senses to the cortex.
