Title Cortical oscillations in health and disease / Roger D. Traub, Miles A. Whittington
Published New York : Oxford University Press, 2010


Description 1 online resource (xiv, 431 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Contents Historical prelude -- Overview of in vivo cortical oscillations -- Epilepsy -- Parkinson's disease -- Schizophrenia -- Cerebellar ataxia -- Single neurons -- Basic properties of gap junctions -- Very fast oscillations (VFO) -- Gap junction-dependent cortical beta2 oscillations (20-30 Hz) -- Gap junction-dependent persistent gamma oscillations (30-70 Hz) -- Epileptiform discharges in vitro
Summary This book reviews a number of clinical neuropsychiatric conditions in which brain oscillations play an essential role. It discusses how the intrinsic properties of neurons, and the interactions between neurons - mediated by both chemical synapses and by gap junctions - can lead to oscillations in populations of cells
