Editorial Reviews

The collection of 20 chapters, based on a May 1994 conference, consists of four parts: oscillations in single neurons and local networks; oscillations in cortical and subcortical systems; oscillatory models in perception, memory and cognition; and applications of synchronized and chaotic oscillations. Topics include spontaneous and evoked oscillations in cultured mammalian neuronal networks, coexisting stable oscillatory states in single cell and multicellular neuronal oscillators, the dynamics of low-frequency oscillations in a model thalamocortical network, perceptual framing and cortical synchronization, and oscillations in discrete and continuous Hopfield networks.
