Oscillations and Brain Networks

One of the areas of study in neuroscience which has grown a lot in recent years is the study of brain network oscillations and their role in sensory coding and their behavioral correlates. A recent study in Neuron by Akem and Kullmann (sweet video abstract) suggests that the brain may act like an AM Radio to allow for functional sensory coding. I hope to post more on brain rhythms, sensory coding, and behavioral state, particularly as it relates to my research and to other work being in doing in the lab, in the coming months.
