  Neuroscience Institute:   Neuroscience Colloquium --- "Thalamo-cortical dynamics in attention, memory and consciousness Different cognitive operations require interactions between different ensembles of neurons across brain networks. However, it is not clear how information is flexibly routed between neuronal ensembles according to cognitive demands. There is growing evidence that the higher-order thalamus plays an important role in regulating information transmission between cortical neurons. Higher-order thalamic areas receive their major driving input from the cortex (rather than the sensory periphery like first-order thalamic areas), forming extensive cortico-thalamo-cortical pathways which strongly influence cortical excitability. I will discuss how the thalamus, particularly the pulvinar, anterior and intralaminar nuclei, contributes to selective attention, memory processing as well as arousal and awareness. Common to these cognitive functions, the thalamus appears to regulate the gain of cortical neurons and their synchrony, thereby influencing information flow across the cortex." , Yuri Saalmann, PhD Assistant Professor University of Wisconsin ?
