The thalamus is important to communication among many associative brain regions including sensory, motor, cognitive, and behavior and it is one of the key elements of neuronal organization in the global function of the brain related to the rich thalamocortical interconnectivity[2]. This study demonstrates for the first time the thalamic functional network during both resting state and task related sessions in healthy volunteer.
