The claustrum is a thin, irregularly shaped pair of nuclei lying between the extreme and external white matter capsules of each hemisphere.  While known for several centuries, its function and role in cognition is poorly understood.  However, it is believed to underly aspects of sensory integration and contribute to the conscious experience.  In this lecture I will summarize the history of research on this mysterious structure and discuss recent efforts to map it inter-regional connectivity in the living human.
