Sensory Function: Thalamus Enhances, Stores Sensory Information: Important Brain Network for Processing Sensory Perceptions Elucidated

The thalamus not only temporarily stores but enhances sensory information, shows study

Every day, we constantly absorb information through our sensory organs, which the brain then needs to process correctly. The information initially reaches the main relay centre, the thalamus, and then travels to the cerebral cortex. The neurons in the so-called higher-order thalamus form the connecting lines between both areas of the brain. Prior to this, their role in sensory processing was unknown. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have shown for the first time in an animal model that they enhance and temporarily store sensory information: http://bit.ly/ScienceDailythalamusresearch
