The hypothalamus is located below the thalamus. The hypothalamus is an important center for many critical internal body functions. The hypothalamus monitors water concentration, hormone concentrations and body temperature. It is associated with feelings of rage, aggression, hunger and thirst.
The hypothalamus also plays an important role as an intermediary between the nervous system ANS and the endocrine system ES (hormones). The hypothalamus has many connections with the pituitary gland and can produce and regulate hormones.
The thalamus is an olive shaped structure about one inch in length.
It is a relay station for impulses traveling to and from the spinal cord,
brain stem, cerebellum and cerebrum.
It directs sensory input to the appropriate place
in the cerebral cortex.
Sensory input from the body, the eyes, ears and other senses pass through the thalamus.. impulses are routed to the thalamus,
In the case of the interna, one area of the globus pallidus, the structure can feed directly to the thalamus. The externa, sends information to the interna, where it can be passed on to the thalamus.
