Brain Morphology and Function Report

Basic Information
Name Diencephalon
Brain Morphology "The diencephalon (""interbrain"") is the region of the brain that includes the thalamus, metathalamus, hypothalamus, epithalamus, prethalamus or subthalamus and pretectum. The diencephalon and the telencephalon both derive from the prosencephalon (forebrain). The diencephalon is located near the midline of the brain, above the mesencephalon (midbrain)."
Brain Function "The diencephalon is the part of the forebrain that contains such important structures as the thalamus, hypothalamus, posterior portion of the pituitary gland, and pineal gland. The hypothalamus performs numerous vital functions, most of which relate directly or indirectly to the regulation of visceral activities by way of other brain regions and the autonomic nervous system."

2. User can drag the nodes to rearrange the layout of the network. Click the node will enter the report page of the node. Right-click will show also the menus to link to the report page of the node and remove the node and related edges. Hover the node will show the level of the node and hover the edge will show the evidence/description of the edge.
3. The network is generated using Cytoscape Web Cytoscape Web
