The MIT Press

This chapter starts by summarizing the major points raised in the book that jointly lead to a number of novel and interrelated views of thalamocortical functions in cognition and behavior. This book has tried to show some of the mechanisms of the brain that provide the interconnections needed for our interactions with the world, focusing particularly on the cerebral cortex, its inputs from thalamus, and, crucially but more briefly, on the major cortical outputs: crucially, because these connections are certain to be playing a significant role; briefly, because many of them are so widely ignored that we know rather little about them.

Keywords:   thalamocortical functions, cognition, behavior, interconnections, cortical outputs
