I am not entirely sure what you want, but perhaps the menu Edit->Check Balance will do the trick. Simply click some where in the expression and select this menu item or use cmd-shft-B (for Mac OS X) and Mathematica will highlight the portion contained by curly braces etc. Repeated application will extend the highlighted section to the next level of curly braces etc.
