neural oscillation

neural oscillation

A series of rhythmic waves of neuronal excitation in the CNS, sustained either by reverberation of electrical activity in neuronal loops or dependent on increases in membrane excitability.

This current study extends the efforts to understand the neural implications of the fractional amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations (fALFF), which provide a more specific measure of low-frequency oscillatory phenomena that reflect spontaneous neural activity, by studying PD longitudinally in which abnormalities in neural oscillations have been identified.
At the center of Frohlich's research are neural oscillations -- the naturally occurring rhythmic electrical patterns that neurons generate and repeat throughout the brain.
It is characterized by neural oscillations (see electroencephalography [EEG], below) and is deactivated when a person focuses on a task or action.
11 ( ANI ): Evidence is mounting that while sleeping the brain employs neural oscillations - brainwaves - of particular frequencies to consolidate learning in specific brain regions.
The fast and slow neural oscillations that underlie the ERP, called event-related oscillations (EROs), represent sensory and cognitive functions.
He then describes how acoustic stimuli as encoded by the lower auditory system are designed to "tune in" to endogenous neural oscillations, thereby laying the groundwork for his idea that music is a "real homologue" to brain processes.
Neural oscillations, regulating the synchrony of neural assemblies, are ideally suited to accomplish these two functions, but in opposing ways.
