Why are you awake, and/or alert while you read this? Blame the caudal part of right ventral posterolateral nucleus of the thalamus. Yep, if you are awake this incredibly sculpted group of brain neurons are the reason. Thalamic nuclei plays an important role in regulating states of consciousness, sleep, and alertness. They have strong reciprocal connections with the cerebral cortex. The thalamus nucleus is located near the center of the brain, with nerve fibers projecting out to the cerebral cortex in all directions. Some of its functions are the relaying of sensory and motor signals to the cerebral cortex and the regulation of consciousness, sleep, and alertness.
