Besides the high frequency oscillations, both data segments contain strong shifts of [theta](t).
At the center of Frohlich's research are neural oscillations -- the naturally occurring rhythmic electrical patterns that neurons generate and repeat throughout the brain.
In order to excite specific rotational type oscillations within the rotor two harmonic signals ([U.
Our group decided to test the hypothesis that amplitude analysis of pressure oscillations on Pmo(t), obtained by a commercial device, can detect changes during BHR testing in preschool children, and to compare the relative sensitivities of amplitude or damping properties of those oscillations and [R.
The patterns of sarcomere oscillation/contraction defined by the newer model include synchronized oscillation (in-phase SPOC); propagated oscillation along a myofibril (traveling wave SPOC); disrupted propagation of a traveling wave SPOC due to another traveling wave SPOC from elsewhere in the same myofibril colliding with or reversing the initial oscillation (disrupted traveling wave SPOC); randomly-occurring oscillation (out-of-phase SPOC); and the force generation state in the absence of oscillation (contraction) (see Figure 2 for phase diagram).
When the volunteers were exposed to stimulating sounds that were in sync with the brain's slow oscillation rhythm, they were better able to remember word associations they had learned the evening before.
