Cortical Oscillations in Health and Disease

In a previous monograph, the authors described an experimental model of the 40 Hz oscillations produced in vivo by visual stimulation. The model involved tetanic stimulation of one or two sites in a hippocampal slice, and was able to produce synchronized oscillations in the presence of axonal conduction delays. The monograph showed how network simulations and in vitro studies complement each other, for example in elucidating the cellular mechanisms by such long-range synchrony could occur. The present monograph continues this type of research, but focuses on additional sorts of oscillations, many of which depend on gap junctions.

Keywords:   gamma oscillations, tetanic stimulation, long-range synchrony, synaptic inhibition, axon conduction delay
