Caption: Brain structure. Artwork of a sagittal (side view) section through a human brain. The thalamus (purple), caudate nucleus (green) and amygdaloid nucleus (orange) are areas of grey matter deep in the cerebral hemispheres. The thalami (one in each hemisphere) relay sensory impulses to the rest of the brain. The amygdaloid and caudate structures are both basal ganglia, collections of nerve cells that connect with the cerebrum and the thalami and so help regulate subconscious voluntary actions. The hypothalamus (red, centre right) is connected to the thalami and the pituitary gland (red, below hypothalamus) and controls the release of hormones by the pituitary, which controls other glands.
