The thalamus is the gateway to the cerebral cortex; assists with motor control and relaying signals to the cerebellum; and plays a role in memory and emotional responses via the limbic system

BRAIN STEM -its function- and COMPRESSION -what it thus affects: Acting as a relay center, the brainstem connects the cerebrum and cerebellum to the spinal cord. The brainstem performs many automatic functions such as breathing, heart rate, body temperature, wake and sleep cycles, digestion, sneezing, and coughing. Ten of the 12 cranial nerves originate in the brainstem.
