The thalamus is heavily involved in relaying information between different brain structures. It contributes to attention, awareness, perception, attention, timing, and movement.
The thalamus is heavily involved in relaying information between the cortex and brain stem and within different cortical structures. Because of this role in corticocortical interactions, the thalamus contributes to many processes in the brain including perception, attention, timing, and movement. It plays a central role in alertness and awareness.

The basal ganglia comprise a group of structures that regulate the initiation of movements, balance, eye movements, and posture.
Networks are the engines that drive our brain, they exist at every level of organization. Genes, proteins, and neurons all form highly integrated complex networks.
The somatosensory cortex integrates sensory information from the body, producing a map similar to that of the primary motor cortex.
Autism is a disorder in brain development that becomes apparent in earliest childhood. It is defined by problems in socialization, communication, and repetitive behaviors.
Abnormal activity in specific brain regions has been associated with autism spectrum disorders.
In the future scientists will create vast databases telling us how neural networks are created, what signals they send. One way of coping with this flood of data will be through neuroinformatics.

The cerebellum monitors and regulates motor behavior, particularly automatic movements. It contains more neurons than the rest of the brain and is a site of neurogenesis.
