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.

Recent findings indicate that not only are P3 components at low amplitude in alcoholics, but the neural oscillations underlying P3 are deficient in alcoholics as well.
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.
Recent empirical results suggests that predictions are embodied in the temporal structure of both stimulus-evoked and ongoing activity, and thus that neural oscillations may provide the neurophysiological basis for the brains representation, coordination, and enactment of sensory predictions.
The slow waxings and wanings of brain activity are called neural oscillations.
Rather, it was thought that such neural oscillations might play the role of a traffic cop, directing information along brain highways.
