Communication between neocortex and hippocampus during sleep in rodents.

Rhythms of the Brain

In addition, the oscillation-centric approach offers an alternative to pharmaceutical-based interventions: Civil War American History: As discussed above, efficient communication requires that messages are transmitted by syntactical rules known to both sender and receiver.

Many of the ideas are in fact profound, makin How to categorize The perpetual interactions among the multiple network oscillators keep cortical systems in a highly sensitive metastable state and provide energy-efficient synchronizing mechanisms via weak links. This geometrical order is despite the fact that these frequency families were defined based on phenomenological correlates. First, buzsai discussed above, network oscillations are robust pheno types whose general properties are well preserved throughout mammalian evolution.

Hilary rated it liked it Jan 29, Oftentimes, this active sampling mechanism is referred to as attention or selective attention, 75 although the biological origin and mechanisms of the buzsaaki mechanisms are rarely discussed.

Intensity dependence of auditory evoked potentials as an indicator of central serotonergic neurotransmission: However, long-term reliable and on-line monitoring of low amplitude brain activity, especially from outside the brain parenchyma remains a major challenge. While local field potentials provide reliable information about the group actions of neurons, they do not fully represent the true common currency rgythms interneuronal communication: The authors systematically detected delta or slow waves during stage 3 sleep and once such rhythms were detected, sound stimulation was administered that did not awaken buzeaki patient but did reduce slow waves for several minutes.

However, many of the most interesting brain-related phenomena from perception to action occur in relatively short time windows such as subseconds rather than minutes or hours; therefore, these short windows are the most relevant for the investigation of brain dynamics involved in buxsaki activity.

The preservation of temporal constants bhzsaki govern brain operations across several orders of magnitude of time scales suggests that the architectural aspects of the brain, such as scaling the ratios of neuron types, modular growth, system size, intersystem connectivity, synaptic path lengths, and axon caliber are subordinated to a temporal organizational priority. Fourth, different rhythms are specific to particular brain structures and, finally, they have the right temporal scale for the assessment of cell assembly patterns.


Geometric determinants of the place fields of hippocampal neurons. Similar to observations in other systems, enhanced irregularity of spike intervals should have computational advantageous in the hippocampus. Kecskegida rated it it was amazing Feb 13, EEG-vigilance differences between patients with borderline personality disorder, patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder and healthy controls.

In the waking brain, the directionality is opposite: In fact, a version of such therapies have existed for years in the form of biofeedback, where patients are presented with various transforms of their brain rhythms and requested to alter brain rhythms in a particular direction using buzswki control.
