German: Thalamus
Japanese: 視床

Anatomy. The largest subdivision of the diencephalon, consisting chiefly of grey substance, situated one on each side of the third ventricle. Plays an important role in perception: the neural impulses from various receptors (except for olfaction) are transmitted to the cerebral cortex, where they are experienced as touch, pain, and temperature.
