What is the physiological mechanism of the harmonic dynamics of whole-brain activity? As a clue to answering this question, I have summarized the anatomical findings of global brain circuits, including the basal ganglia and cerebellum. The thalamus always appeared in these circuits as a collection point for all information. The “parallel circuit” seemed to be a basic structure of the global brain circuits. The interaction between parallel circuits was suggested to be achieved by convergence and divergence of information through the parallel circuits, and by switching between them.
