α-Oscillations in the monkey sensorimotor network influence discrimination performance by rhythmical inhibition of neuronal spiking
Extensive work in humans using magneto- and electroencephalography strongly suggests that decreased oscillatory α-activity (8–14 Hz) facilitates processing in a given region, whereas increasedExpand

Neural mechanisms of transient neocortical beta rhythms: Converging evidence from humans, computational modeling, monkeys, and mice
Significance Neocortical beta is one of the most prominent signatures of neural activity measured noninvasively in humans. Beta expression is a strong predictor of healthy and pathological perceptualExpand

Top-Down Controlled Alpha Band Activity in Somatosensory Areas Determines Behavioral Performance in a Discrimination Task
The brain receives a rich flow of information which must be processed according to behavioral relevance. How is the state of the sensory system adjusted to up- or downregulate processing according toExpand

Inter- and intra-individual variability in alpha peak frequency
Converging electrophysiological evidence suggests that the alpha rhythm plays an important and active role in cognitive processing. Here, we systematically studied variability in posterior alpha peakExpand

Somatosensory working memory performance in humans depends on both engagement and disengagement of regions in a distributed network
Successful working memory (WM) requires the engagement of relevant brain areas but possibly also the disengagement of irrelevant areas. We used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to elucidate the temporalExpand

Beyond the Status Quo: A Role for Beta Oscillations in Endogenous Content (Re)Activation
Abstract Among the rhythms of the brain, oscillations in the beta frequency range (∼13–30 Hz) have been considered the most enigmatic. Traditionally associated with sensorimotor functions, betaExpand

Beta oscillations in the monkey sensorimotor network reflect somatosensory decision making
The neuronal correlate of perceptual decision making has been extensively studied in the monkey somatosensory system by using a vibrotactile discrimination task, showing that stimulus encoding,Expand

Somatosensory Anticipatory Alpha Activity Increases to Suppress Distracting Input
Effective processing of sensory input in daily life requires attentional selection and amplification of relevant input and, just as importantly, attenuation of irrelevant information. It has beenExpand

Resting GABA and glutamate concentrations do not predict visual gamma frequency or amplitude
Significance In vitro and modeling studies have indicated that GABAergic signaling underlies gamma oscillations. It would be valuable to measure this correlation between GABA and gamma oscillationsExpand

Laminar Profile and Physiology of the α Rhythm in Primary Visual, Auditory, and Somatosensory Regions of Neocortex
The functional significance of the α rhythm is widely debated. It has been proposed that α reflects sensory inhibition and/or a temporal sampling or “parsing” mechanism. There is also continuingExpand
