How to find out which module runs hardware?


Hi, ppl. I'm trying to learn to develop modules for some hardware,
but now I'm learning from an example. First need to know which module
in /proc/modules runs mouse or keyboard.
How to find this out? Simple command like lsmod or cat /proc/modules
didn't say that. How to find our relation between a loaded module and
it's source code?
