Local Entrainment of Alpha Oscillations by Visual Stimuli Causes Cyclic Modulation of Perception

E. Spaak, F. P. de Lange, O. Jensen
2014 Journal of Neuroscience  
To address these questions, we presented human subjects with rhythmic stimuli in one visual hemifield, and arhythmic stimuli in the other.  ...  Using magnetoencephalograhy to measure ongoing brain activity, we observed strong alpha activity contralateral to the rhythmic stimulation outlasting the stimulation by several cycles.  ...  Finally, although there are indications in the literature that neural activity following rhythmic stimulation is similar to neural activity observed during stimulation (Halbleib et al., 2012) , persistent  ...

Neural synchrony within the motor system: what have we learned so far?

Bernadette C. M. van Wijk, Peter J. Beek, Andreas Daffertshofer
2012 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Importantly, although synchronization is deemed to play a vital role, it is not the only mechanism for neural communication.  ...  Spike timing and rate coding act together during motor control and should therefore both be accounted for when interpreting movement-related activity.  ...  Synchronous discharges between cell pairs in M1 may show directional specificity different from their directional tuning curves based on firing rate .  ...
