    00:00 Another component of the hypothalamus is the epithalamus. This structure consists of the pineal gland, which is under the shaded area right in through here. Habenular nuclei are also nuclear members of the epithalamus. They’re not shown here, so not labeled.

    00:28 Let’s take a look now. I want you to understand the functions of the pineal gland first.
