  Thalamus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The thalamus (from Greek θαλαμος = bedroom, chamber) is an element of the brain (part of the central nervous system contained in the skull, in front of the cerebellum).
Due to different ontogenetic origins, two diencephalic elements must be distinguished from the thalamus proper: the epithalamus (comprising mainly the habenula) and the perithalamus (past ventral thalamus and "reticulate nucleus") separated from the thalamus by the lamella lateralis.
The thalamus is largely made of nuclear groups that relate to specific functions in the brain (see List of thalamic nuclei).

The thalamus is a routing station for all incoming sensory impulses except those of smell, transmitting them to higher (cerebral) nerve centers.
Thus the thalamus is a major integrative complex, enabling sensory stimuli to evoke appropriate physical reactions as well as to affect emotions.
With the hypothalamus, the thalamus establishes levels of sleep and wakefulness.
