Cortical areas are known to generate a plethora of oscillatory (varying in frequency) which has been ascribed to various behavioral states. Such activity is dependent on precisely regulated activity patterns of groups of neurons within large neural networks, generating synchronous changes in the local field potential which can be measured extracellularly both in vitro and in vivo. My research focuses on how this activity is sustained and modulated in different behavioral and pathological states.
