The subthalamic Brain function book zona incerta seems to contain action-generating systems for several types of "consummatory" behaviors such as eating, drinking, defecation, and copulation. Scientists hope the increased understanding will lead to new ways to treat, cure and prevent brain disorders. It acts as a sort of relay station for auditory and visual information.
