Neuronal communication within synchronous gamma oscillations

The gamma-band oscillatory activity notably appears in the primary sensory and motor cortical areas. Because both sensory and motor responses are characterized by many static and dynamic variables, questions are raised regarding how cortical neurons manage to transmit analog information within the gammaoscillatory activity. Here, a possible way of communication among pyramidal neurons in the gamma frequency range is proposed based on the sampling theorem in communication theory.
