To get a clearer picture of the relationship between the two signaling patterns, the scientists used a beam of light to artificially enhance the signals sent from the thalamus to the cortex, but even strong light produced only weak activity peaks in the cortex and didn't help the mice perceive whisker tickles.
In highlighting damage to the pathways that physically connect the thalamus, one of the hubs of consciousness if you will, and the motor cortex, which drives our voluntary muscular activity, as the reason behind the dissociation we have provided an important explanation".
Rossi and colleagues at the university's Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration evaluated a scheduled, personalized stimulation approach, with stimulation of the centromedian thalamus (bilaterally) tailored to the times of the day when patients experienced the most sequelae from the tics, such as when they were driving, exercising, or working, and when the intensity of the tics was the greatest.
A week later, the same fear memory is remembered through a different circuit that connects neurons in the paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus (PVT) with neurons in the central amygdala (CeA).
Finally, the posterolateral portions of cerebellar hemispheres are the neocerebellum (cerebro-cerebellum); axons originating from the dentate nucleus project to contralateral motor and pre-motor areas via the thalamus.

We found that the amount of iron is increased in the hippocampus and is associated with tissue damage in patients with Alzheimer's but not in the healthy older individuals--or in the thalamus.
In patients with TBE, MRI may reveal unilateral or bilateral thalamus lesions, as well as lesions in the cerebellum, brainstem, and nucleus caudalis (8).

The MORE Registry will involve approximately 200 prospective patients over two years from more than 30 centres across Europe including the Tampere and Tubingen Hospitals which have the most experience to date with DBS of the Anterior Nucleus of the Thalamus.
The researchers also looked at the effect of aerobic exercise on two other regions of the brain, the caudate nucleus, which deteriorates with age and disease, and the thalamus, a more stable brain region, but no changes were evident.
