The hypothalamus is in control of homeostasis and the process of negative feedback (for example: blood solute level and body temperature). This is in contrast to the thalamus which is a sort of relay organ of the brain designed to transmit the sensory electrical pulse onto the more specialised organ (e.g. retina (eye) --> optic nerve --> thalamus --> primary visual cortex --> visual association cortex). It is slightly large and positioned above of the hypothalamus.
