scrollto and pulse

scrollto and pulse

Hi everyone,

Here is what i am trying to achieve. i have a list at the top of my page with names of cities. And below the map with "hotspot".
I'm already using jquery.maphilight.min.js with jquery-1.3.2.min.js as well as query.fancybox-1.2.1.pack.js.
So when you hover one the city/area of a map, the background color change and if you click a fancybox shows up with info in it.

So i would like to be able to click a name from the top list to scroll to the city/area of the map and make it pulsate. So a person who does not know where a city is but know the name can pin point it on the map.

My issue is that there is so many script out there that i am confuse to which one using.

Can anybody suggest a plugin or tutorial. I'm a beginner in js.
