The thalamus: sensation and action gateway between body and brain Nearly all the senses, except the olfactory, initially route their neurons to the thalamus. 2). Sensory input is assembled there and sent to multiple processing destinations in the brain. Stimulation destined to become conscious connects with specialized neural networks linking the thalamus to specific sensory processing areas in the cerebral cortex (Castro et al. 4). 6). The thalamus, potentially subject to overwhelm and imbalance, very actively facilitates communication with and between cortical sites.

More discriminating tasks, like pushing a button in response to a flashed red stimulus but not a white one, require nearly half a second (420 ms; Kosinski 2006). The difference in reaction times reflects cortical decision-making needed to inhibit rapid impulses that begin non-conscious reactions. A pair of almond-shaped bodies creates the brain’s amygdala. One amygdaloid resides in the right hemisphere and the other in the left. 5. 5 Cross-section of the brain showing lateralization of structures.
