Investigating large-scale brain dynamics using field potential recordings: analysis and interpretation
Best practices on how field potential recordings (EEG, MEG, ECoG and LFP) can be analyzed to identify large-scale brain dynamics, and highlights issues and limitations of interpretation are presented.

It is shown that a functional commonality of networks engaging in theta rhythmic states is that they emerge around decision points, reflecting rhythmic synchronization of choice-relevant information.
Gamma-Phase Shifting in Awake Monkey Visual Cortex
It is found that stronger neuronal activation leads to spikes earlier in the gamma cycle, i.e., gamma-phase shifting is brought about by an interplay between overall excitation and gamma-rhythmic synaptic input and has interesting consequences for neuronal coding, competition, and plasticity.

It is reported that core aspects of cognitive control are encoded by rhythmic theta-band activity within neuronal circuits in the anterior cingulate cortex, suggesting that the theTA-cycle could serve as a temporal reference for coordinating local task selective computations across a larger network of frontal areas and the hippocampus to optimize and adjust the processing routes of sensory and motor circuits to achieve efficient sensory-motor control.

It is proved that the spike train to field pairwise phase consistency (PPC), a quantity closely related to the squared spike-field coherence, is a monotonically increasing function of the number of spikes per trial.
