Exploring the Thalamus is a comprehensive, up-to-date reference for researchers. It discusses problems concerning the function and structure of the thalamus and concludes each chapter with thought-provoking questions regarding future research. This book provides an in-depth look at the function of the thalamus and its role as relayer of.   Exploring the Thalamus by S. M. Sherman and R. W. Guillery is a substantial work, comprising 10 chapters, which provides an overview of how the authors see the role of the thalamus.

The book is not intended to be a definitive thesis on the thalamus, but an offering to consider with them the functional applications of what is known about circuit structure and physiology in the thalamus. Thus, we are invited to join Sherman and Guillery in "Exploring the Thalamus.".
